Parallax View Best Films Of 2005

Not a great year for comedies, obviously. In entirely unrelated news, the German film industry snags two of the top three slots for 2005.

Dead Kenny never got round to reviewing the winning film on these pages, but it was the most completely satisfying production of the year, an improbable (if not impossible) punk rock romance amidst the Turkish immigrant community in Germany, seething with equal measures of love and loss, hope and anger. The DVD is out now in the UK to rent or buy.

1. Head On (directed by Fatih Akin)
2. A History Of Violence (David Cronenberg)
3. The Edukators (Hans Weitgartner)
4. The Constant Gardener (Fernando Meirelles)
5. Ma Mere (Christopher Honore)
6. The Machinist (Brad Anderson)
7. Sin City (Robert Rodriguez/Frank Miller)
8. In Your Hands (Annette K Olsen)
9. Maria Full Of Grace (Joshua Marston)
10. Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge Of The Sith (George Lucas)
11. Sideways (Alexander Payne)
12. War Of The Worlds (Stephen Spielberg)
