Best of the Decade Derby POLL: Best English language film from 2000

I got a lot of great feedback, and a lot of recommendations from my post pondering the merits of English-language cinema from the year 2000, and if there were any worth revisiting as I compile my top ten list of the decade.  Unfortunately as time is tight and I don't have time to rewatch everything, I think I can only commit to revisiting one or two films.  To decide which ones, I figure I'd put it in the hands of the democratic process.  So here's a list of the most likely English language films for me to rewatch from 2000, and some acknowledgements of those who've already endorsed some of the titles. Please vote for JUST ONE that you think is most worthy of being on a top ten list of all films from this decade. I'll make a decision by the end of the week...
