Another year of film has gone by, some say too fast, some say too slow. For me the year, was a kind of gap year; a year that kind of like the age of nineteen offers no interesting turns or twists. When 2010 turned out some exciting films (Inception, The Social Network) but left an ambivalent feeling in my movie-loving heart. 2011 was .. no different. There were no major releases that I was that excited to see (besides The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and X-Men) nor too intriguing character driven collections of fabulous actors (except for Drive, Take Shelter and A Dangerous Method). Some were successes, some were disappointments, and some I haven’t seen yet (DAMN YOU release dates).
But every CLOUD HAS A SILVER LINING, AN EXCEPTION TO THE RULE and SOME OTHER MASSIVELY MELODRAMATIC CLICHÈ MEANING THERE WERE A FEW DECENT FILMS THAT CAME OUT THIS YEAR! Here’s a collection of 2011′s 13 Best Films, in no particular order :
Runner-Ups : The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Incendies, Midnight in Paris.
Films I haven’t seen from 2011, that appear on other top lists and that I’m extremely interested in : Shame, The Artist, Take Shelter.
P.S. Come back in the next few days to check out the best NEW Tv-Shows of 2011, a preview of the upcoming film year and and some awards BUZZZ!
