It’s not all about Hollywood movies…

LA Weekly is the definitive source of information for news, music, movies, restaurants, reviews, and events in Los Angeles. Every year they organize a “Film Poll” with 95 critics from across the US voting for their favorite films, performances, and filmmakers in 12 categories. Terence Malick’s “The tree of life” – winner in Cannes – was voted as best movie in 2011. Silver medal for the fantastic “A separation”, Iranian film by Ashgar Farhadi whiwh was a splendid Golden Bear in Berlin. Third place for the MEDIA supported “Melancholia” by Lars Von Trier.  Actually, not that bad as a poll…

And which film would you vote yourself as 2011 best?

I loved “A Separation” but my favourite this year has been the Russian  HOW I ENDED THIS SUMMER by Alexei Popogrebsky.  Space, light, silences, tension…a real masterpiece. I loved it.

Watch the trailer:  How I ended this summer.

  1. It’s difficult to pick one out. There have been so many great films this year. But the three films that really hit me in the gut were: We need to talk about Kevin, Incendies and La guerre est déclarée.

  2. I should say that there is a lot of movies i haven’t seen yet, but for me the best one so far is ‘Begginners’ by Mike Mills.
