Most of the titles were expected....... the last two were unexpected........
a delightful collection....... quite a feast for the senses.

yippeee!
I am glad to note that I have seen all of the films that appear on your Top Ten, though many of them I have seen prior to 2011.
My vote would have gone to 'Blue Valentine' for being the top film, but I can understand why you would give more brownie points to a movie like 'A Serious Man'. 'The Savages' and 'A Serious Man' are both quirky films and are likely to have a limited appeal otherwise.

A really interesting listing of films.

Rachit said...

A super-duper selection, boss!!;)

kewwwwL..... hapPy viewiNg iN 2012!

Arpita said...

Lovely selection. I would have included 'Ichchhe', 'Mission Impossible 4', '127 Hours', 'Delhi Belly' and 'Friends with Benefits' in my selection though - it's a wide variety of films that I liked this year..... hahaha.

Siddhu said...

Will definitely try to catch 'The Savages' and 'Kick-Ass' on video. Have seen and loved all the others from the list. 'A Serious Man' is particularly interesting. Keep me posted on the recent viewings this year, dude.

Nalinn said...

Much awaited..... BRILLIANT...... keep up the good work.

abhishek said...

Superb selection...... may you see a LOT MORE GOOD FILMS this year......!;)

Sassy said...

Yo, bro! I'd have a lot of catching up to do, it seems......
I have seen, and obviously loved, 'The King's Speech' and 'Black Swan' though.

Eric said...

INTERESTING!

Manojj said...

The first seven from your Top Ten are my absolute favorites as well.......
I have not seen the Bengali films, and - honestly - did not like 'That Girl in Yellow Boots', I found it a bit pretentious.

Vivek said...

Fascinating, buddy:)

raj said...

All are my favorites..... but I also enjoyed most of the summer blockbusters of the year which you seemed to have skipped or not liked as much!

ranjann said...

Truly interesting.

Ryan said...

Good to see as many as four Indian films in the list. Is it because you saw less of World Cinema, or because these were honorable mentions?

Pickoo said...

Nice, but, missing dearly- Delhi Belly, Ranjana Aami Aar Aasbo Na, Ichchhe, Iti Mrinalini, 127 Hours, and Rio among others.

dougie said...

Am impressed!:)

ankit said...

My picks from 2011, and serious recommendations (for anyone who loves films), are:
'The Skin I Live in',
'The Tree of Life',
'Certified Copy',
'Hugo',
'Submarine',
'Tabloid',
'Weekend',
'Drive',
'Margaret',
and
'The Future'.

Akaash said...

Fantabulous selection !!!!

Keep rocking in 2012 !!!!

pallavi said...

I am glad that I have seen nine out of the ten favored movies of yours, from the ones seen last year, and my vote for the best film - from amongst them - would go to 'Black Swan'. It moved me to tears and even gave me an unexplainable boost.

Saahil said...

A very interesting Top Ten.
Ryan Gosling and Natalie Portman being my hot favorites, I'm thrilled to see their films getting prominence.

aniruddh said...

Absolutely marvelous! I can't agree more with you on the place of pride given to Bangla cinema.

Sunny said...

surprise! surprise!
yeah, a double surprise for me....
Actually, I'm visiting after a while, and noted a few changes on the blogger interface, plus on this very blog of yours, Anindo,
and, then,
I am extremely delighted to see a majority of my favorite films having found favor with you! cheerio!
love you, buddy

diya said...

Nice.
I have seen all of the top ten movies of yours this time.
All I liked, only I did not like 'Gandu (Loser)' as I thought it was unnecessarily and exceedingly provocative.

LoverBoy said...

Impressive:)

Have fun watching better and more special films this year...... happy viewing...... enjoy!
