(Newser) – Cult filmmaker John Waters offers up his 10 favorite movies of 2010, and the list is as interesting as you'd expect:

  • Domain: He describes his favorite movie of the year thusly: "A 40-year-old alcoholic aunt (played by Béatrice Dalle—'Betty Blue' herself!) and her gayish teenage nephew form a perversely close relationship by taking walks together. Lots of walks!"
  • Enter the Void: "The best film ever about taking hallucinogenic drugs."
  • Ricky: "If David Lynch and David Cronenberg had sex and one of them magically got pregnant, this film could be their offspring."

  • Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work: "If Jews went to confession, this film would be a sacrament."
  • Jackass 3D: "Isn’t Steve-O chugging down a glass of sweat collected from the ass-crack of an obese man and then vomiting at you in 3-D the purest moment of raw cinema anarchy this year?"
  • Life During Wartime: Performances by Paul Reubens ("without a trace of Pee-Wee") and Charlotte Rampling "will break your heart."
His complete list is at Artforum. (Read more Best of 2010 stories.)
