My top 10 screenings of 2011

Picture me laying down on my sofa with Miles Davis on the turntable and with pen in hand. I thought I would share with you my favorites of the year. I’ve based these on freshness of vision, mastery of the medium and enjoyment.

Here are my top 10 screenings of 2011:
1. The Tree of Life (Terrence Malick) – Brad Pitt is excellent throughout
2. War Horse (Stephen Spielberg) – Spielberg doing what he does best
3. Hugo (Martin Scorsese) – A great all round family film
4. The Artist (Michel Hazanavicius) – Brave, beautiful and silent
5. We Need To Talk About Kevin (Lynne Ramsey) – An award winning novel becomes a superb film
6. 1911 (Jackie Chan) – Another great Hong Kong release with Jackie’s 100th film
7. Forbrydelsen (The Killing Season 2) (Danmarks Radio) – Sarah Lund back in her stunning knit wear
8. Tick Tock (Len Chi) – Best 5 minutes I’ve spent on YouTube
9. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (Tomas Alfredson) – Beautifully shot and holds true to the original message – which is trust and betrayal
10. Breaking Bad (Vince Gilligan) – Addictive viewing

Looking forward to seeing The Kill List and the new Great Expectations film in the new year.
