Top Ten Movies of 2011

Posted: Updated:

2011 was the rare and beautiful year that was so packed with surprising and innovative films, it was seriously difficult to boil it down to just ten. It was a particularly fruitful year on the domestic front; beside the American films both independent (The Future, Take Shelter) and big-budget mainstream (The Tree of Life) included on my list, there were also just-barely-weeded-out gems like the hysterical Bridesmaids, left out only because I wanted more, more, more of the ensemble cast; the haunting film that introduced us to Elizabeth Olsen, Martha Marcy May Marlene, and the low-key but stunning Cold Weather, both of which are highly deserving of honorable mentions.
