The fine film folks in San Diego have made a vivid impression in both going against the grain and adhering to group think with their selection of the best of 2011.  A top nod to The Artist is no but old news, but welcome, since the film is nearly irresistible.  However, the oddest choice made by an governing body this season must be the inclusion of Brit Marling as Best Actress for Another Earth, an ambitious if ultimately unsatisfying arty fun house.
