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.
