Best Movies of the Year So Far.

My favorite movies so far, all U.S. releases, except for the films made in Latin America or Spain, since we don't get too many of them so I go with the Mexican release instead. Even if I'm always complaining how Phoenix sucks for the Latin Alternative scene, we have great art houses for us cinefiles, and being part of the Phoenix Film Society & SOAP doesn't hurt ;)
