Art DepartMENTAL’s Top 10 Favourite Films of 2011


Art DepartMENTAL's 2011 Top 10 Favourite Films- Tree of Life

.

If there is anything I love more than production design it is film in and of itself. I see roughly 250-300 films a year so while I definitely have a bit of catching up to do I did engulf quite a few films last year. However, I’m still kicking myself that I have yet to see A Separation which I’ve been told is phenomenal. Perhaps once I see it this list will change but as of right now, on Oscar Sunday, here are my Top 10 Favourites of 2011! Don’t judge. Oh, okay, you can judge.

  1. Not having seen many of the nominees, I am in no position to judge the best. But since HUGO picked up awards for cinematography and PD/Set Dec, it must be a movie I must get on Blue Ray. Let’s see what else rises to the top tonight.

  2. *Head slap* I still need to see CAFÉ DE FLORE.

    I must say, it’s a fine list!

    The BEGINNERS is such a good film, I`m really glad to see it there.

    We Need To Talk About Kevin is as equally stunning as it is eerie, a definite must see!
