For 2011, in the first round of voting, “Drive” [directed by Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn] was the leading choice. Once other members were able to cast their votes, another film took the lead, Asghar Farhadi's "A Separation." In the end, we all decided to choose both films as the best of 2011. The two very distinct films chosen is a reflection of two emerging school of thought among members of the circle. We cannot wait for next year's voting. Others may disagree with our choice, but then again, enough egos and pride have been trampled to come up with a consensus.
As for the best Filipino film of 2011, our members have not chosen yet. We will keep you updated.
