"And they said my career was over after 'The Godfather.'"

For what it's worth on the soul food front, though, I've read two voters for this year's poll (results forthcoming in August, I believe) who have divulged their lists: Roger Ebert and Peter Howell. They both voted forTree of Life.
It's exceedingly unusual for a newish movie to crack the heights of the consensus, (it's a regular beef people have with the survey that nothing new seems to score high these days), let alone a movie released the year before. And it's very unlikely that Tree of Life is going to do so. But, based on the two lists I've seen, it's already two-for-two! Interesting.
