What’s the Best Film of 2011? Let Me Know

The 2011 Academy Award nominations will be announced January 24th. I plan to have my own list of the ten best pictures of the year all ready to go on that day, but I would like to know your opinion. I obviously haven’t seen every movie that came out last year (though I’ve made an admirable effort), so maybe some of your favorites will spur me on to check them out. If you can’t limit yourself to just one movie, feel free to include a couple, three, or even offer up your own top ten list. Add your comment below or email me at shortcomments@gmail.com and maybe you’ll change my mind or make a suggestion I haven’t already considered.

In the meantime, for the sake of reminiscence and filling space, here’s a list of what my ten favorite films from 2009 were:

10. Crazy Heart
9. World’s Greatest Dad
8. The Road
7. Thirst
6. The Brothers Bloom
5. Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans
4. Let the Right One In
3. Antichrist
2. Precious
1. Inglourious Basterds

I’m happy to say that I still like all of these films, although I’d probably have to move Crazy Heart up the list considerably if I were to perform a rewrite. That movie has really grown on me. I’ll throw up the 2010 list soon and solicit you, dear reader, for more movie opinions.
