I have this running joke with my friends that I'll never finish my 2011 top ten list. Even though I have a few I still need to see I think it would be fun to post here.

1. Turin Horse
2. Tree of Life
3. A Separation
4. Le Havre
5. Faust
6. Drive
7. Shame
8. Two Years At Sea
9. Hors Satan
10. A Dangerous Mind

Also, I see Turin Horse is counted in the dynamic list as 2012. If it is in my 2011 list does it not count/ should I edit this?

Your vote counts whether you list it in 2011, 2012, or any other year. It's currently 2012 on the dynamic list because that's where the most people here have placed it (though nearly as many have placed it in 2011).
