Re: Movies Seen in 2011

I think I'm the only person in the world who didn't unconditionally love Black Swan, or isn't even fond of Darren Aronofsky in general. I almost got yelled out of a room at a party this weekend for disagreeing with people on its amazing-ness. Yeesh, lol.

Anyway, my last few films:

Black Swan, directed by Darren Aronofsky - C
Cache, directed by Micheal Haneke - B
A Prophet, directed by Jacques Audiard - B+
Bronson, directed by Nicolas Winding Refn - A-
True Grit, directed by the Coen Brothers - B-

I highly recommend Bronson if you're looking for something dark and psychological, especially if you're interested in something that's a little reminiscent of A Clockwork Orange. I feel like I need to learn French and then re-watch Cache in order to bump it up to an A since it's such an atmospheric movie, with the background chatter going mostly untranslated. True Grit felt like too much of a scene-for-scene remake without any of that Coen Brothers magic sprinkled in.
