Molly Segal's Top 11 DVDs of 2011 

Coast writer since 2011

Around a Small Mountain (Cinema Guild) Directed by Jacques Rivette

Beetle Queen Conquers Tokyo (Argot) Directed by Jessica Orek

Bill Cunningham: New York (Zeitgeist) Directed by Richard Press

New York Times street-style photographer is a captivating character: accepting no pay for his work snapping stills of Manhattan's chic and elite, living minimally and alone---not even the documentary can solve this puzzle.

Mesrine: Public Enemy Number 1 (Alliance) Directed by Jean-François Richet

You don't have to see part one, Mesrine: Killer Instinct, to get hooked on this gripping and gruesome second instalment chronicling French gangster Jacques Mesrine's (Vincent Cassel) post-jail criminal life and demise.

The Round Up (eOne) Directed by Roselyne Bosch

Submarine (Alliance) Directed by Richard Ayoade

Tabloid (eOne) Directed by Errol Morris

This documentary starring Joyce McKinney examines her very public private life after she "kidnapped" the Mormon missionary with whom she was smitten. It's hard to tell fact from fiction as McKinney appears increasingly deluded.

The Tempest (Maple) Directed by Julie Taymor

Navigating the line between Shakespearean dialogue and contemporary touches, including the gender switch of Prospero to Prospera (Helen Mirren), this adaptation is entertaining---comedic talent includes Russell Brand---and enticing.

The Trip (Alliance) Directed by Michael Winterbottom

Brit powerhouses Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon venture across England on a food-critiquing road trip for Coogan's work. Their meals develop a pattern of one-upmanship with their celebrity impersonations while ruthlessly mocking the other.

Waste Land (eOne) Directed by Lucy Walker

YSL: L'Amour Fou (Mongrel) Directed by Pierre Thoretton

Favourite movie as a child: Disney’s Beauty And The Beast. Favourite movie now: Hannah And Her Sisters.
