"Burning": It was, for sure, an extraordinary movie year. Little to nothing separates my favorite 10 films -- for that matter, my top 20 or 30 . "Private Life": Tamara Jenkins' comic and compassionate fertility drama is like "Waiting for Godot" with two of the best actors around: Kathryn Hahn and Paul Giamatti.In a movie year where love that lasts was hard to find, the searching couple in "Private Life" made for an affectionate and indelible portrait of middle-aged marriage.Shot in stunningly crisp black and white, Pawlikowski's film is a triumph in an 85-minute package."Private Life": Tamara Jenkins found something novel, and wonderfully feminine, to say about middle-class New York intellectuals in this impeccably written and acted story about marriage, fertility and hope in middle age, that is humorous, precise and true, and a great spotlight for the equally excellent Kathryn Hahn and Paul Giamatti."Juliet, Naked": I won't pretend like "Juliet, Naked" has the gravitas or prestige of most of the other films on this list, and yet it is quietly, unassumingly one of the more poignant, and straightforwardly enjoyable movies of the year about mid-life second chances, for those who have never made any mistakes (Rose Byrne's small-town character Annie), and those who've made all of them (Ethan Hawke's elusive, cult rock star Tucker Crowe).
