Snowpiercer

First and foremost this film is unlike any that I can ever remember seeing.  Imagine a post-apocalyptic Wizard of Oz.  It is at different times dark, hopeless, hopeful and funny.  The inclusion of Tilda Swinton was brilliant – she brought color and humor to an otherwise colorless world.  I think it lost a bit of steam at the end (it might be 15 minutes too long) but it was worth the ride.
