Punch-Drunk Love Ranked Top 10 of 2002

UK website "Top 10 Films" has posted a list of films from 2002 and rank them according to their moniker. Punch-Drunk Love rated second, behind Alexander Payne's "About Schmidt". Their words:

2. Punch Drunk Love (Paul Thomas Anderson, USA) 
Adam Sandler proved he was more than just a lightweight comedy actor with Paul Thomas Anderson’s dark romantic comedy. Anderson had shocked many when he stated after previous film “Magnolia” that he wanted to work with Sandler. The comic actor was known for his box office comedy hits such as “Big Daddy” and “The Wedding Singer” but seemed like a strange match for Anderson who was conversely known for the hard-hitting and often downbeat, ensemble epics “Boogie Nights” and “Magnolia”. However, credit to both actor and director for pulling off what is arguably their best work.
