The six best films of 2011, this Sunday in Kriterion

About the author
Mark Visbeek is a designer, musician, superstar, and loves illeism. Always looking to create beautiful things, I'm often distracted by the amazing stuff happening around me. My most important weapons are limitless amounts of love and a faux-French accent.

The past year was a good year for cinema. There were a lot of big Hollywood blockbusters that blew away our low expectations, and a lot of art-house films that appealed so much they almost turned mainstream. The most interesting thing however, is that all these films had one key element linking them; they were all either miserably sad, awfully depressing or bitterly heavyhearted.

Emotional Marathon

It may be caused by the sentiment of the times, with the worldwide crisis defining our collective mood and influencing the way we create and consume art, or it may just be coincidence. Whatever it is, Kriterion decided to have one last look at the year behind us and round up the crème de la crème of 2011 cinema in a day-long movie marathon.

So clear up your Sunday and slip on your sweatpants, because you are going to recover from your hangover in the cinema. Spread out over the day you can choose to see three of six films; The Tree of Life or Black Swan in the first round, Melancholia or Beginners in the second round, and Drive or Biutiful in the third round. The exact timetable to this emotional roller coaster ride can be found at Kriterion’s website.

To make sure you won’t want to kill yourself afterwards, try and work in at least Beginners or Drive, and make sure you taste the delicious food provided by Hotmamahot. See you there!
