    carried in the arms of cheerleaders

    1. Mulholland Drive
    2. Ocean's Eleven
    3. AI: Artificial Intelligence

    Honorable mentions:

    Wet Hot American Summer (brutal cut, love this movie)
    Zoolander
    The Royal Tenenbaums
    Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring
    The Man Who Wasn't There
    Training Day
    Spirited Away

    Great year overall. Mulholland Drive is a masterpiece, and Ocean's Eleven is a perfect "mainstream" film in my eyes - incredibly entertaining. I like the Royal Tenenbaums, but I never really connected with it like I did some of Anderson's other movies - I admire it more than I love it. AI is Spielberg's hidden gem, incredibly underrated imo.

    Mulholland Dr. wins it with 26 votes. The Royal Tenenbaums was in second place with 14 votes. Mulholland Dr. will move on to the bracket.

    Insane year. When I was actually living through 2001, my films of the year probably would have been: Shrek, Rat Race and Monsters Inc
