(list in alphabetical order)
This was my favorite 3D movie experience of the year. Herzog is one of my favorite filmmakers, and he gives us rare access to the planet’s earliest art work.
Drive has an amazing cast (Gosling <3), style and soundtrack. I was also really blown away by Valhalla Rising (Nicolas Wending Refn, 2009).
A near perfect documentary.
The most fun I had at the movies all year was at the Sundance U.S.A. screening of Kaboom at BAM. Reunite with your college roommates to watch this one.
My 2012 end of the world party is going to be Melancholia-themed. Meet me in the stick teepee.
Twisted and gorgeous.
I have a little bit of a love/hate with this film. It’s ambitious and very well done and the child actors are incredible, there’s just a little too much whispering. Regardless, it’s clearly one of the best films that came out in 2011.
A blunt and humorous take on the female coming of age story. This was my favorite film at TFF 2011 and the winner of the Best Screenplay—Narrative Award.
WNTTAK = a trifecta of 3 amazing women: Lynne Ramsay + Lionel Shriver + Tilda Swinton.
