December 22, 2011
After the last retrospective looking back at the films of 2011, we decided to slow down the influx of videos chronicling the year in cinema until one of our regular contributors showed up, and Kees van Dijkhuizen has come through with Cinema 2011, another fantastically edited piece of work from the guy who also brought us 15 Years of Fox Searchlight and all those director spotlights. Previously we've featured Cinema 2009 and Cinema 2010, but 2011 could very well be his best work yet with flashes of films like X-Men: First Class, Super 8, Crazy Stupid Love, My Week with Marilyn, Margin Call and more. Watch!
Here's Kees van Dijkhuizen's retrospective Cinema 2011 - a look back at 2011 in movies:
Kees van Dijkhuizen: "A mix of laughs, kisses, fights, tears and everything in between. Each year I’m reminded of the sheer force a couple of frames can hold, and it’s something only found in film. It seems to just fly by, and if you don’t pay attention, you might miss it all. A gorgeous masterpiece about one family coping with the end of the world, the portrait of a young man diagnosed with cancer, the end of a ten-year adventure that reached millions, a cynical writer discovering the magic of Paris. No matter how you look at it, 2011 had something to offer for everyone." A list of music and films used can be found right here. Cool?
