Feb 282012


Back in December when the ‘Best Films of 2011’ list was compiled, there was a whole lot of 2011 films which hadn’t come out in New Zealand or Australia yet. The Artist, Shame, The Descendants, and Tinker Tailor Solider Spy to name just a few. Now that these 2011 films have been released, the final version of our ‘Best Films of 2011’ list can be revealed. Check out the list after the jump.

Don’t worry your pretty heads – Drive is still number one. We just wanted an excuse to post a picture of Ryan Gosling. In fact, the top 3 stays the same – with just 2 films moving onto the list, and 2 dropping off. The new list is below


  1. Drive
  2. Senna
  3. Melancholia
  4. Shame
  5. Tinker Tailor Solider Spy
  6. Beginners
  7. Weekend
  8. Attack the Block
  9. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2
  10. Bill Cunningham New York


The new films are Shame and Tinker Tailor Solider Spy – both of which received 4.5/5 from us and are quite simply outstanding films. These pushed out Jane Eyre and Win Win.



What do you think of the updated list? Would you change any of your top films after seeing the 2011 films released during January and February?
