Monday Movies Should Check That Out, Or At Least Feel Guilty for Not Doing So
Bonus entry: It’s time for Top Tens!
Here are my top ten movies (selected from the LA Weekly/Village Voice Film Critics Poll) that I didn’t get to see this year, but really want to.
- Attack the Block
- Certified Copy
- Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives
- Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
- The Skin I Live In
- Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life
- A Dangerous Method
- Margin Call
- Cave of Forgotten Dreams
I’m also very interested in Martha Marcy May Marlene, The Artist, Film Socialisme, The Interrupters and Another Earth, and there are another dozen or so that I’ve noted from that list but will have to fight it out with the rest of the queue.
Here are my top ten movies from this year: Please, see these. They contain wonderful things.
Here’s my second tier: Goods delivered, plus an emotional connection.
- Bridesmaids, Friends With Benefits, The Muppets, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, 50/50, The Descendants.
Only a churl would point out that there are twelve movies on my top ten. N.B. this is only as regards movies with a 2011 release, kind of a silly pursuit for anyone without the prestige-picture-crammed end-of-the-year schedule of the professional film critic. Just the same, though I didn’t publish a top ten for 2010, looking back at the year, the only 2010 movies I saw in 2011 that would have made such a list were Easy A and Blue Valentine.
What are your top ten? DiY hype in the comments, or argue with mine.
