Romanian productions among the best films not launched in the US

“Tuesday, after Christmas”, by Radu Muntean, “The Autobio­graphy of Nicolae Ceausescu”, by An­drei Ujica, and “Aurora”, by Cristi Puiu, are in the top 10 of the best films not officially launched in the US in 2010, compiled by the most influential American film critics.

Film Comment, a top made at the end of every year, “filters” the opinions of about 100 pundits, including the most influential American film critics, writers and editors. Thus, the top three positions in the ranking of the best 20 films not launched in the US this year are claimed by “Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives”, by Apichatpong Weera­setha­kul, winner of the 2010 Palme d’Or, “Film So­cia­lisme”, by Jean-Luc Godard, and “Poe­try”, by Lee Chang-dong. Cristi Puiu’s “Aurora” ranked 5th, followed by “The Autobiography of Nicolae Ceausescu”, by Andrei Ujica, on the 7th position, and “Tuesday, af­ter Christmas”, by Radu Muntean, at no. 10.

On the other hand, the leading position in the top 50 of the best films launched this year in the US is claimed, according to American film critics, by “Carlos”, by Olivier Assayas, followed by “The Social Network”, by David Fincher, “White Material”, by Claire Denis, “The Ghost Writer”, by Roman Polanski, “A Prophet”, by Jacques Audiard. Also featured in the top 10 of films launched in the US this year: “Winter’s Bone”, by Debra Granik, “Inside Job”, by Charles Ferguson, “Wild Grass”, by Alain Resnais, “Everyone Else”, by Maren Ade, and “Green­berg”, by Noah Bau­mbach. The ranking closes with “L’en­fer d’Henri-Georges Clou­zot”, by Serge Bromberg and Ruxandra Medrea, at no. 50.
