Analytic Vision’s Top 10 of Best Fiction Features at Cinema in 2011

I have selected the best 10 feature fiction films I saw in 2011 from those which could have been seen in the public theaters of Bucharest from January 1 to December 31. I present the trailer and a few comments about why I consider it among the best.


1. Hanna 

A wonderfully original thriller made in awry European fashion by an American director. I consider it on par with Leon and La Femme Nikita. At its inception by the CIA, it is also a strong warning about the future of Gattaca-like technology possibilities. Saoirse Ronan arguably delivers her best performance on the screen, at least in a leading role. All looks and feels fresh. A must-see!

2. Drive

Ryan Gosling’s mesmerizing performance of the internationally multi-awarded and acclaimed picture is hardly the film’s single peak. However, all the performances are excellent. The 80′ s atmosphere of this neo-noir is enhanced by the brilliant soundtrack (which owes more to music supervision than to the original score). The script is excellent, and the feel is unique. It must be seen on a big screen.

3. The Adventures of Tintin

Simply, the most outstanding animated production ever made in film history. Unfortunately, it was bashed by the Oscars on the pretense that it has been modeled after live-action performances. Spielberg’s last year effort duly explains why we haven’t seen a film from director Spielberg since Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of Crystal Skull (2008). This is the ultimate total adventure film feature. It surpasses, in my opinion, everything that has ever been done, both in the adventure and animation genres. It challenges your sense of reality, beats any imagination, and throws you into a rollercoaster for which the cinema was invented as a spectacle, not forgetting to deliver a message for every age. To be seen in IMAX 3D or at least 3D.

4. The King’s Speech

Easily one of the best-made movies about coaching ever! Maturely written, brilliantly acted, and technically gorgeous, the best film from 2010 in the vision of the Academy Award is a story of a man who finds the power to confront himself while in the middle of a World War to begin. A movie to be seen by all consultants and coaches.

5. True Grit

A great story about the coming of age of a young woman in search of her father’s killer. A movie about courage and honor.

6. Isolerad / Corridor

A brilliant, Hitchcockian thriller that brings you a lot of surprises. Excellently scripted and beautifully filmed.

 7. Scream 4

One of the most brilliant slasher movies ever comes again rebooted by suspense master Wes Craven. A real treat for fans. And, as usual, it comes with slick messages.

8. Rabbit Hole

Nicole Kidman portrays a remarkable sorrowful woman after her child dies. A beautiful psychodrama that takes a practical approach to the subject.

9. Medalia de onoare

A remarkable portrait of an old Romanian veteran who, which after the Revolution, finds his only joy in the medal he is decorated with by the Romanian president.

10. Hævnen / Revenge

The Oscar-winning Danish production brings forward a microcosm of violence and reprehension, creating a memorable discourse for the viewer.
