Favourite Films Of 2011

This is the first part of my review of the year, my favourite films of the past year.

I saw some impressive films at the start of last year and at the end of this, with not much inbetween. Anyone would think that's the awards season...

10. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy


You're supposed to describe this as compelling, tense, absorbing, involving etc etc and in some ways it was. Some would say dull. In reality, it's probably somewhere in between.

9. True Grit


Good film but... I'm still not sure why they made it.

8. Submarine


An excellent film, about the horrors of growing up and some.

7. 127 Hours


127 Hours is an experience that I survived. I think. Unforgettable, for several reasons.

6. My Week With Marilyn


Michelle Williams does an extraordinary job as Marilyn Monroe.

5. Drive


An absorbing piece of cinema. Some would call it slow but I’d call it tense and involving.

4. The Fighter


Much more than just a film about boxing.

3. The Social Network


‘You're going to go through life thinking that girls don't like you because you're a nerd. And I want you to know, from the bottom of my heart, that that won't be true. It'll be because you're an asshole.’

2. The Kings Speech


Excellent casting, excellent acting. A thoroughly entertaining piece of historical cinema that gives a fascinating insight into King George VI

1. Black Swan


An enthralling experience from start to finish, something you would not expect from a film about a ballet.
