Default best films of the year

ok, let's get this started. i'm working on my top 10 list of 2005 and trying to figure out what's what. here's where i need your help. since i don't get to go to press screenings or whatever, i usually miss a couple of films and look like an idiot when it takes me 3 years to see them. so, what do i absolutely need to see before i finish my list?

i've seen the following notables:

King Kong
Syriana
Saraband (the last bergman film)
Walk the Line
Crash
Pride & Prejudice
Millions
Broken Flowers
Good Night, And Good Luck
The constant gardener
Proof
Sin City

and maybe a couple others (and some real rubbish)

so, other than stuff that hasn't come out yet (i.e. Munich) what am i missing?

King Kong- A-
Syriana- B
Saraband- haven't seen
Walk the Line- A
Crash- A+
Pride & Prejudice- C+
Millions- A+
Broken Flowers- B+
Good Night, And Good Luck- B
The constant gardener- C-
Proof- B-

EDIT: i am really anticipating Munich. some are saying its SS's masterpiece which says a ton, we shall see.

my favorite movie of the year has been crash.

oh and even though this will not be the view of most i really liked History of Violence and think it should be on the list...it was on AFI's top 10 list which is usually the benchmark for top 10 lists.

one more thing...i am really waiting for woody allen's new movie with scarlett johanssen...

Brokeback Mountain, Oldboy, The Baxter, The Squid and the Whale, Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance, Palindromes, Hidden, 2046, Me and You and Everyone We Know, and 3-Iron are the 10 best I've seen so far.

The New World is the best film I haven't seen yet, and probably will be #1.
