My Top 5 Films of 2011


Really, how could it be anything else? I was fortunate enough to see Drive well before its theatrical release, and I spent the next couple of months telling everyone I knew that they had to see it. They told me to shut up about the movie because it wasn't out yet and if I talked about how great it was one more time they wouldn't see it just to spite me. But even if I stopped talking about it, I didn't stop thinking about it. It's amazing. It's wonderfully written, acted, directed, scored, and everything. Plus, it's absolutely gorgeous. In fact, it's so gorgeous, that I think it's the movie that proves film is dead. Long live digital! Anyways, I love pretty much everything about Drive, and it is in fact the only movie from 2011 that I paid to see a second time. I think that's pretty high praise.

About Alec Kubas-Meyerone of us since 9:39 AM on 05.12.2011

Alec Kubas-Meyer signed up for Flixist in May of 2011 as a news writer, and he never intended to write a single review. Funny, then, that he is now the site's Reviews (and Features) Editor. After stumbling upon the existence of that year's New York Asian Film Festival only two days before it began (and getting very lucky that they wanted the press), he saw some movies that radically changed his worldview, and that was that. Now he is one of the most prolific reviewers on the site, greatly helped by the constant stream of screening series and film festivals around New York City. Generally speaking, the films he reviews are ones that won't make many waves in mainstream American cinema, but he feels that, bad or good, those are the films that need the coverage most of all.

He likes all kinds of movies, everything from Jason Siegel-centered romantic comedies to black-and-white Swedish arthouse movies to movies that would make the average person all but skin themselves in the shower in an attempt to get clean. Also Asian films, especially Korean films. Alec really likes Korean films, thanks in large part to that same film festival.

When not watching or writing about movies, Alec can be found making them amateurish-ly. He also plays videogames, and writes about them on the internet sometimes, usually for The Daily Beast.
