A Scanner Darkly

*Sorry, but to me just because the film's based around a character from a television series doesn't make it an adapted screenplay. I mean, what was more purely original this past year?
**There were only 2 I had an interest in seeing this year, and both exceeded my expectations.

Still haven't seen: Half Nelson, Letters from Iwo Jima, Notes on a Scandal, The History Boys, United 93, Babel, Venus, The Lives of Others, Pan's Labyrinth, Sherrybaby, The Last King of Scotland
