Ten favorites (the best of 2012, so far)

As I begin to lose my mind over the next two weeks catching up on as many films as possible, here is the cream that has to date risen to the top. If you're wondering why a certain title I've professed to love isn't here, let that indicate just how good this year has been so far. With new films by Kathryn Bigelow and Quentin Tarantino and Peter Jackson, among others, just around the corner, I can barely contain my excitement.

Beyond the Black Rainbow (dir. Panos Cosmatos)

The Deep Blue Sea (dir. Terence Davies)

Dredd (dir. Pete Travis)

The Innkeepers (dir. Ti West)

The Kid with a Bike (dir. Jean-Pierre Dardenne, Luc Dardenne)

Killer Joe (dir. William Friedkin)

Lincoln (dir. Steven Spielberg)

The Master (dir. Paul Thomas Anderson)

Moonrise Kingdom (dir. Wes Anderson)

This Is Not a Film (dir. Mojtaba Mirtahmasb, Jafar Panahi)


  1. Rob-

    I notice your letter grades for current films change from time to that based on further reflection or repeat viewings? Keep up the great work...look forward to your year end list.
