Best Films of 2011Published by Clay Cane on Wednesday, December 28, 2011 at 12:00 am.
2011 was a wildly rough year for film. The box office suffered and audiences finally grew tired of 3D and remakes. However, there were a handful of unforgettable movies over the past 12 months. Check out my third annual list for the best films of 2011 (click on the quote to go directly to the review).
10. Gun Hill Road
“ Raw, disturbing and educational, Gun Hill Road is sure to shake up what the average audience might think of someone who suffers from being born in the wrong body. The first must-see indie of the summer.”
9. Johnny Mad Dog
8. London River
7. Attack the Block
6. The Skin I Live In
5. Beats, Rhymes and Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest
“ A hip-hop version of The Rolling Stones’ Gimme Shelter and one of the best music docs to come out in recent years. Whether you love hip-hop or not, this is a documentary not to be missed and one that will not be forgotten.”
3. Desert Flower
Honorable mentions: Shame, Being Elmo: A Puppeteer’s Journey and Limelight.
