#4: Bernie
Richard Linklater's black comedy took me entirely by surprise when I caught it on DVD, winning me over with its depiction of a very real Texas town that adored its local undertaker Bernie so much they couldn't bear to convict him when he murdered the meanest woman in town. With Jack Black's natural showboating put to perfect use as the exuberant Bernie, and a Greek chorus of Texas-accented locals (plus Matthew McConaughey as the bulldog district attorney) to tell the tale, Bernie is as warm and energetic as its title character, with a deep streak of affection for a world where a story this strange is even better than fiction.

Best Moment: The graphic representation of Texas geography, with a big question mark over the panhandle.
