Quentin Tarantino’s Official Top Eleven of 2011

Quentin Tarantino’s Official Top Eleven of 2011

Here is Quentin Tarantino’s official Top Eleven of 2011, per the Tarantino Archives. I am happy to see that Tarantino shares my love of “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” as a script and as a movie. I love it that “The Artist” ties with another Weinstein Co. film, “Our Idiot Brother.” He does seem to admire Hazanavicius, as he puts him on his best director list. As “Iron Lady” and “My Week with Marilyn” are also on his list, methinks he is being kind to the Weinsteins.


1. Midnight In Paris
2. Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes
3. Moneyball
4. The Skin I Live In
5. X-Men: First Class
6. Young Adult
