best films of the decade?

a good friend of mine asked us to list our top 40 (well, he said 30 – but i couldn’t do it) films of the decade.

so here are mine, in no particular order (except for #1&2):
1. mar adentro (the sea inside) – quite possibly my favorite film of the decade
2. the diving bell and the butterfly (a close second)
3. funny games (american version)
