Village Voice: Year-End Film Poll-2011

Видимо, последний глобальный топ-лист этого года от Village Voice. Заявлено, что участвовало 95 критиков и на основе их списков составили топ. Результаты в принципе не особо отличаются от Film Comment, IndieWIRE, Sight&Sound. Что наводит на вывод: критики мыслят в различных изданиях примерно одинаково по большей части. «Древо жизни» Малика — уже де-факто самый признанный фильм года (в прошлом году была «Социальная сеть», а еще годом ранее «Повелитель бури»).
