5050 The Artist COntagion Drive ELAIC Hugo A Separation Take Shelter The Tree of Life Weekend

A really intriguing line-up for me, considering the variety of films here. It all boiled down to two; I keep coming back between my top two, and if I had done this months before, I would have chosen my # 2. In the end, I went with the one that feels more important and powerful at the same time. # 2, on the other hand, is the most emotional ride one could have from this year – this is my heart’s choice. 🙂
