The 10 best indie movies of 2008

As I reported a few days ago, film industry insiders at all levels of the business say, universally but almost in a whisper, that it was a remarkably strong year for movies in theatrical release. Says distributor-turned-filmmaker Jeff Lipsky, "I don't know why the mainstream media, or whatever is left of it, isn't talking about the fact that our business has been thriving, almost contemporaneous with the collapse of the stock market." Well, here I am, Jeff, the last man standing on the Titanic that is pseudo-serious entertainment journalism. Consider it done.

I think Jeff Lipsky is being a bit too optimistic. The films being released now were budgetted and funded before the credit crunch hit so it really is too early to say just yet. What will be worth keeping an eye on is what films manage to go into production over the next month or so.
Perhaps. I've not seen any of them. I never get out any more! :(
I still haven't seen any of these flicks. Have you?
That has been one of the films on my "must see" list. I'll move it further up the list now.
