1. Children of Men
2. Pan's Labyrinth (liked it more on second watch).
Surprised by the disdain for Babel here. While I think the four stories could be more tightly connected thematically (I find the Japanese one to be slightly out of place despite being well told), they were all heartfelt portrayals of people experiencing perhaps the most desperate and depressing moments of their lives. The performances were also exceptional; Barraza, Pitt, Blanchett, Kikuchi, etc. I also loved the soundtrack.
