Your Film Poll: The Readers' Picks
A few weeks ago, the critics had their say, voting in the annual Village Voice Film Poll. And now we've got readers' picks. The biggest surprise? Critics and readers agree. Both incredibly intelligent and highly respected groups of voters chose Kathryn Bigelow's Iraq War thriller as the best film of the year and David Lynch's Hollywood hallucination as the best of the decade. So many movies, so much harmony.
