CineDrunk: Favorite Films of 2000


Remember the New Year that fueled our fears of end-of-the-world-caused-by-computer-glitch destruction? The New Year that outsmarted all the math machines on Earth because... math?

Those were innocent times.

Sixteen years later, we're taking a look back at Y2K. We're not quite ready to unveil our list of the best films and performances for the current year (though we're well on our way, with 80 films under our belt).

(Our first thought was to continue with our 2005 retrospective, until we decided we weren't the biggest fans of the films of 2005.)

So instead, we're rolling out our 15th-anniversary celebration of the films of 2000! The first year of this century brought us some great cinema, both popular and indie alike, and we had drunken fun trying to recall our memories from that crop of films.

Y2K Cocktail

  • 2 oz cold espresso (we used super-concentrated Vietnamese coffee)
  • 1/2 oz Cognac
  • 1/2 oz Grand Marnier
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup

Stir, strain, and garnish with a twist of orange peel.
