The Top 10 Films of 2010

Outsiders were in on screen in 2010
By PETER KEOUGH  |  December 21, 2010

 

8. PLEASE GIVE
Here's a candidate for Best Supporting Actress for 2010: Ann Morgan Guilbert as Andra, the 90-year-old who not only refuses to drop dead for the convenience of those waiting for her apartment but won't be sentimentalized, caricatured, or otherwise denied her orneriness. Such characters are part of why Nicole Holofcener is one of the best directors in America, and why this film is so funny and heartbreaking. Catherine Keener and Oliver Platt as Andra's morally compromised neighbors are also brilliant. Please give it chance.

    In Roman Coppola's sophomoric second feature (his 2001 debut CQ was promising), Charlie Sheen shows restraint as the titular asshole, a dissolute ad designer and solipsistic whiner who's mooning over the loss of his latest love.
  •   REVIEW: UPSIDE DOWN  |  March 14, 2013
