Frivolous Lists - Canada

The Toronto Film Festival just published its list of the all-time top ten Canadian films. I see at least one favorite film in there, and other directors I admire; but if I were making the list (using the one-film-per-director rule that such surveys tend to enforce, with Cronenberg as the big loser thereby), it would look like this:

1. The Tracey Fragments (Bruce McDonald, 2007)
2. La Face cachée de la lune (Robert Lepage, 2003)
3. Naked Lunch (David Cronenberg, 1991)
4. Blood Relatives (Claude Chabrol, 1977)
5. La Donation (Bernard Émond, 2009)
6. C.R.A.Z.Y. (Jean-Marc Vallée, 2005)
7. Les Bons Débarras (Francis Mankiewicz, 1980)
8. Paper Route (Robert Frank, 2002)
9. Tower (Kasik Radwanski, 2012)
10. Next of Kin (Atom Egoyan, 1984)
Honorable Mention: Last Night (Don McKellar, 1998)
