Dissenting from the Result: Rishi Agrawal- “Admittedly, 2004 is a weak year for film and I think Kill Bill, Vol. 2 is a great film, one of my favorite Tarantino films. However, I cannot support this decision because, simply put, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is the best film of the entire decade.”

  1. I’m really pleased to see Twilight Samurai given recognition. I hope some of your readers will give it a try and then – because it’s so wonderful that I know they’ll want more – look for The Hidden Blade and Love and Honor which make up the thematic trilogy.
