My Top Five Films Of 2011

5. Take Shelter - a claustrophobic two hour one-acter, with a great score and mesmerising performances.

4. Melancholia - Von Trier's searingly intense rumination on depression via the end of the world.

3. Perfect Sense - Ewan McGregor and Eva Green lose their senses in this BBCish anfractuous love story.

2. The Skin I Live In - a commanding and melodramatic Noiry psycho-sexual drama from Almodóvar.

1. Another Earth - hi-concept, lo-fi, intelligent and masterly creative filmmaking from Brit Marling.

Commended: Drive, Sleeping Beauty, Attack The Block
