Top 11 Films of 2011

It's frustrating. Film critics in Milwaukee can never be sure their top-of-the-year list will stand because they haven't seen all of the top films by year's end. Inevitably, several significant releases don't reach Milwaukee until weeks or even months into the new year. And then there is the eternal problem of what constitutes the top. "Best" is a tricky word without clear definition. Best at what? So let's chuck the pretense and call this what it really is: my favorite films of the year just ended—the ones I might actually enjoy seeing again and again.

The Milwaukee Common Council is debating a proposal that would reduce the municipal fine for possessing a small amount of marijuana from $250-$500 per violation to no more than $50 per violation. Do you support this change?
