*…none of which (so far) were actually released in 2011.
1. Confirmed utter awe of Hitchcock.
2 & 3. Poetic, quiet, eerily beautiful. Both happen to be about pairs of children, (mostly) off-screen violence. (Otherwise completely unrelated.)
4 & 5. Crossing off the last few Miyazaki movies off my list. Very good. On the ups and downs of flight as vocation.
6 & 7. Realized I rather liked Billy Wilder.
8. First Tarkovsky.
9. First Chaplin.
10. I could also add every other Woody Allen movie I watched or rewatched to this list.
