The Best Films of 2011

Some people publish their top 10 film list at the end of the year. Not me. I, for no reason other than sheer laziness, wait until some random point in early May

So, here are my top 10 films of 2011:

10. SHAME

Intense and provocative and once seen, not easily forgotten. Shame is out on DVD and Blu-Ray in the UK on 14th May 2012

9. I WISH

One of the most heart-warming family films I’ve ever seen. Very sadly, no UK release is currently planned for I Wish

8. THOR / CAPTAIN AMERICA

Good old-fashioned comic book fun and great prequels for The Avengers. Thor and Captain America now both available now on DVD and Blu-Ray

7. DRIVE

The most stylish film of the year. Drive is now available on DVD and Blu-ray

6. THE GUARD

Hilariously, blackly, laugh-out-loud funny. The Guard is now available on DVD and Blu-ray

5. CRAZY STUPID LOVE

A surprisingly smart comedy with fantastic performances from Carell, Gosling and Stone. Crazy Stupid Love is now available on DVD and Blu-ray

4. MICHAEL

One of the unsung cinematic highlights of the year. Michael is available on DVD and Blu-Ray in the UK on May 28th 2012

3. THE DESCENDANTS

Clooney is at his brilliant best in this funny and moving tragi-comedy. The Descendants is in available on DVD and Blu-Ray on May 21st 2012 in the UK

2. 50/50

An incredibly bold, incredibly funny and equally touching and thoughtful script with stand out performances from Gordon-Levitt, Rogan and Kendrick. 50/50 is available on DVD and Blu-ray now

1. CONFESSIONS

Confessions is easily my film of the year and I urge everyone to see it! You can read my full review here: https://stevekonshu.wordpress.com/2011/03/15/kokuhaku-confessions-review/
