Hardly a surprise I know but still it's worthy of a celebration.
We have plenty of submissions already for the next instalment but I'm still after posts for some of the years biggest hits, including:
Amelie (Jean-Pierre Jeunet)
A Beautiful Mind (Ron Howard)
Black Hawk Down (Ridley Scott)
Moulin Rouge! (Baz Luhrmann)
The Others (Alejandro Amenabar)
Y Tu Mama Tambien (Alfonso Cuaron)
The Fast Runner (Zacharias Kunuk)
The Devil's Backbone (Guillermo del Toro)
For anyone new to the Counting Down The Zeroes project, to put it simply, we're celebrating ten years of cinema, a month at a time. When I say we, I mean you, me, anybody and everybody, this is a celebration of not only cinema but of the casual critic. Do you have something to say on cinema in 2001? Is there a film you want to write about, or maybe even an old post that you would like to give some air time? Then this is the place for you.
If you want to take part then please leave a comment on this post, or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The first post for 2001 will go live at 9pm - London time - tonight. Stay tuned and thank you.
Oh yeah. I can't forget the song. I do like to start things with a song.
