I know, I know, it’s been ages since I’ve posted anything on this blog. My excuse is that I’m trying to juggle a few other writing projects at the moment, but I couldn’t let the first fortnight of 2011 go by without my traditional look back at the previous year’s film releases. Sadly, I have to say that 2010 was an appalling year as far as cinema attendance was concerned. I suppose the main reason for this is that the recession made its presence felt in the world of film distribution, with the result that non-London independent cinemas either didn’t manage to obtain any prints of minority releases or were forced to show less populist fare at impractical times. Therefore, instead of presenting you with a Top 5, I think I’ll have to restrict myself to choosing just 3 favourite films from the last twelve months. Here they are, in the order in which they were seen:
So there you have it. Feel free to comment and share your own favourites with me and other readers. Oh, and just in case you’re interested, 2011 has got off to a fairly healthy start with Peeping Tom on DVD and The King’s Speech at the cinema.
