AFI (Amercian Film Institute) has release its Top 10 of the best films of 2011. In my opinion there are many doubtful choices but since they are the "reference" I will try to understand those choices... Well, it's probably the most grossing pictures and the few artistic ones they couldn't pass over. Since I've only seen two of the ten listed I can't really comment but I think that many films don't deserve to even be mentioned in this category. Here's the link.
Here's the list:
AFI MOVIES OF THE YEAR:
BRIDESMAIDS (Paul Feig)
THE DESCENDANTS (Alexander Payne)
THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO (David Fincher)
THE HELP (Tate Taylor)
HUGO (Martin Scorsese)
J. EDGAR (Clint Eastwood)
MIDNIGHT IN PARIS (Woody Allen)
MONEYBALL (Benneth Miller)
THE TREE OF LIFE (Terrence Malick)
WAR HORSE (Steven Spielberg).
