Happy New Year everyone! I wish you all a healthy, prosperous and adventuresome 2012; I’m also hopeful it will also be a better movie year. 2011 doesn’t seem to have been a notable year for film (at least, from what I’ve seen thus far). Quite a few of those I really want to see aren’t in theaters in my area yet—I’ll probably have to run from art-house to multiplex and back again over the next several weeks to try to catch them (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, Shame, The Skin I Live In, Carnage, Martha Marcy May Marlene, Dangerous Methods). A couple others blew right by me and I’ll have to see them on Netflix or On Demand. So in the interest of helping me—and your fellow Pajibans—were there any movies that blew you away last year? All the world is putting out their top ten lists, but all I want from you is one. What was the best 2011 movie you saw?
Why yes, Cindy Davis does live in the boonies.
