I know this is gone way beyond ridiculous, but I forget every year that once you start it’s hard to stop posting these things even long after any meaning they might have had is lost in the kudo cacophony.

  1. Well, as boring as these lists can get it’s still nice to see the recognition of Tree of Life.

  2. Yep. I considered for a minute not posting any that were just more praise for The Artist or The Descendants, but that’s not really fair just because I don’t happen to agree those movies are the bees knees.

    so, I’m stuck with all or nothing and obviously I’m going for all.

  3. THE TREE OF LIFE is absolutely the best film of 2011.

    Hence, I salute you Windy City scribes!!!
