Though each day may be dull or stormy, works of art are islands of joy. Nature and poetry evoke "Sehnsucht," that longing for Heaven C.S. Lewis described. Here we spend a few minutes enjoying those islands, those moments in the sun.
On his main list, I've seen only Of Gods and Men, The Mill & the Cross, and The Tree of Life, and would agree they are among the best of the year for me. I'd put Hugo up there too. I did also see Jayne Eyre. I believe you've already seen my list of films I saw in 2011 (which included a lot from prior years) in which I gave rough ratings for everything. Other standouts from 2011 (and 2010) include Gunnar Goes God, Blood in the Mobile, The Kid with a Bike, Luminaris (short), The Pedestrian Jar (short), The Paris Quintet in Practice Makes Perfect (short; vimeo password given out on their Facebook page), and Clear Blue (short).
Thanks; I did see your list, and it challenged me that I need to watch more, and more intelligent, films!
