What are the 100 best films of the third millennium? – Le Figaro

VIDEOS – The BBC presented its ranking of the biggest feature films produced since 2000. Cocorico! Sixteen French productions are invited in the list of “new classic”. Le Figaro decrypts the other teachings of the Top 100.

For the BBC, “the movie does not die, he evolved”. In the desire to leave a cinematic traditionalism too common in schools and newspapers, and to impose new classic to our century, the English media gathered 177 critics (journalists and academics) to identify the hundred greatest films since 2000.

The aim is also to show that there on the big screen good alternatives to superhero shows, and grow a new audience to quality cinema, which is also a variety of increasingly large.

● Top 10 ranking

1- Mulholland Drive (David Lynch, American, 2001)

2- In the Mood for Love (Wong Kar-wai, Chinese, 2000)

3- There Will Be Blood (Paul Thomas Anderson, American, 2007)

4 Spirited Away (Hayao Miyazaki, Japanese, 2001)

5 Boyhood (Richard Linklater, American, 2014)

6 Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (Michel Gondry, French / American, 2004)

7- The Tree of Life (Terrence Malick, American, 2011)

8 Yi Yi: a One and a Two (Edward Yang, Taiwanese / Japanese 2000)

9 A separation (Asghar Farhadi, Iranian, 2011)

10- No Country for Old Men ( Joel and Ethan Coen, American 2007)

It is David Lynch, for Mulholland Drive – award at Cannes in 2001 – that is awarded the first place. The Top 10 is then logically dominated by US productions, including Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind , which still allows the French Michel Gondry to represent France at the vertices (6th place).

This restricts Top supplemented by three Asian and Iranian productions ( a separation , 2011), and surprises especially with the presence of a cartoon in fourth place.

Spirited Away Miyazaki, most successful in the history of Japanese cinema, and here only representative of Japanese animation, is the gondola of four animated films American, whose wonderful WALL-E (29th place).

● notably absent

the American directors, too, are especially at honor. Christopher Nolan ( Memento , The Dark Knight , Inception ), the Coen brothers ( No Country for Old Men A Serious Man , Inside Llewyn Davis ), Wes Anderson ( The Royal Tenenbaums , Moonrise Kingdom , The Grand Budapest Hotel ) and Paul Thomas Anderson ( There Will be Blood , The Master , Inherent Vice ) are each appointed three time.

however, there was the amazing and unique presence of masters such as Martin Scorsese ( the Wolf of Wall Street ), Steven Spielberg ( AI Artificial Intelligence ) and Quentin Tarantino ( Inglourious Basterds ), as well as the general lack of young directors. The Canadian Xavier Dolan, in particular, could have been eligible for the “Club 100″.

● French cinema at the festival

The French cinema is rather well represented, scoring placing 16 100 feature films, including the delightful surprise Holy Motors Leos Carax (2012) in sixteenth place. As French productions, three films of Austrian director Michael Haneke swell the tricolor row: Hidden (2005), The White Ribbon (2009) and love (2012).

There are also The Life of Adele Abdellatif Kechiche, A Prophet by Jacques Audiard, Amélie Jean-Pierre Jeunet, and more surprisingly Goodbye to language at the 49th place, the last film by Jean-Luc Godard, who won the jury prize at Cannes in 2014 (tied with Xavier Dolan).

Toni Erdmann comes to the last minute

for the hundredth and last place, encrusted a last minute guest in the person of Toni Erdmann (Maren Ade), released a few days ago already elected and film of the year by critics.
