What films just missed your top 10 lists this year?

It's always interesting see what films just missed the cut on the Best of the Year lists, and for 2009, it's no exception. I saw over 150 films this year, and ended up with a top 100 that is on the message board if anyone cares to read (found here, and I'll also list it in the comments), but this is your turn to chime in on your favorite films of 2009 that just missed your top 10.
-Have at it!

  2. Man, that sure is a list of movies you've seen this year ranked in order of quality. Obviously we differ on placement of a few titles (I liked things like A Serious Man and A Single Man far better than you), but this is solid for the most part.
