Best of 2000

I've heard it more than once — the year was terrible for movies and TV, epitomized by the ascension of Survivor and Regis, the return of Demi Moore in Passion of Mind, the ridiculousness of Richard Gere in Autumn in New York. But our intrepid reviewers found reasons for joy amid the clutter, and indeed, many of these reasons are extraordinary — the release of Herk Harvey's Carnival of Souls on a Criterion Edition DVD, Darren Aronofsky's riveting Requiem for a Dream, the ongoing spectacle of Whitney Houston. Which leads us to conclude: there's always good stuff out there, you just have to be open to it. Except, perhaps, if you're trying to cast a countable vote in Florida.

On to the lists.

A Musical Chameleon: An Interview with Morcheeba
