roger ebert's best films of 2010

They're here; I particularly enjoyed this bit about his top pick, The Social Network:

The tension in the film is between Zuckerberg and the Winklevoss twins, who may well have invented Facebook for all I know, but are traditional analog humans motivated by pride and possessiveness. If Zuckerberg took their idea and ran with it, it was because he saw it as a logical insight rather than intellectual property. Some films observe fundamental shifts in human nature, and this is one of them.

Also? Sounds like I really need to see The American.
