The folks at Huffington Post asked me to provide a list of the 11 best films people might have missed this year, and I was happy to oblige.
If you’re a discerning moviegoer who lives in a community with a specialty theater (or art house, as we used to call them), you may have seen some of the titles on my list. But there are some smaller, more offbeat pictures, that fly under the radar of even avid film buffs. Because they don’t have major marketing budgets—or, in most cases, marquee stars—they have no presence on billboards, bus stops, magazine covers, or talk shows. Some are home-grown and some are foreign-made; many are serious but others take a lighter approach to the stories they present.
