Must Watch: Kees van Dijkhuizen's Retrospective of Cinema 2010
by Ethan Anderton
December 21, 2010
Since we've already featured two stunning retrospectives looking back at cinema throughout the yer 2010, we were going to wait until the last week of December to feature anymore fond memories of movies passed. But now Kees van Dijkhuizen is back with Cinema 2010. The man delivered his own 2009 retrospective last year and was then commissioned to make a similar video for 15 Years of Fox Searchlight. Again showing his amazing editing skills, van Dijkhuizen looks back at 2010 with clips from films like Let Me In, Buried, and The Town, complete with a soundtrack featuring some familiar music from this year's movie trailers.
Here's Kees van Dijkhuizen retrospective video Cinema 2010:
Along with providing a detailed breakdown of the films featured (complete with timecode index), this is what van Dijkhuizen had to say: "We’ve reached the end of yet another unforgettable year of movies. Not only did this years movies push boundaries even further, they did so with impeccable risks. In a time of recession and playing-it-safe, films like Inception and The Social Network still found a great audience. But smaller films also, like Blue Valentine, Splice, Buried and Breaking Upwards found a loving audience. It’s crazy to think that all these films came out in one year, and so I tried my best do give them each a moment of glory in my latest film retrospective, Cinema 2010." What do you think?

My question is this: Does anyone know where I can watch these cool type of montages for past year's movies? I would love to see something like this with Avatar and the rest of the 2009 hits.

Is there anything better than movies? Yes, but not many.

Mumford and Sons again! Sigh No More is one of their best singles ever. This was a good one.

glad to see Toy Story 3 and Tangled getting their due, easily the best animated films of the year, and with TS3, probs the best period.

This is the weakest of the 3 imho. Just saw Due Date last week, best comedy of the year. period.

Why was there only one clip of Toy Story 3!?!?!? There was a lot of Harry Potter. Just saying. I liked it, but all of these kinds videos always have a biased to one movie. Just what I've noticed. I love watching these videos even if they do though. I'm not trying to be mean or whatnot. Sorry if it sounds mean.

What was that animated movie on the train? Never seen it before, hope I haven't offended anyone but I don't know what it was and it looked great.
