Alright, people. Here we go. The crème de la crème. The year’s best movies. The top ten movies of 2012.
2012 was an incredible year for movies, with an abundance of huge blockbusters that delivered on their promises, and your typical mix of Oscar worthy material in the mix as well. This list could have turned in to a top 20 with ease.
But I made the tough calls, and whittled it down to just ten.

“Beasts of the Southern Wild” premiered last January at the Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Grand Jury Prize for dramatic films. At Cannes, it won the The Caméra d’Or (“Golden Camera”), which is awarded for the best first feature film (this is director Benh Zeitlin’s first feature-length film). It also won the similarly purposed Sutherland Award, awarded by the British Film Institute. Sight & Sound and AFI have both listed the film amongst their Bests of 2012.
With so many critical accolades showered upon it, I knew I had to see it before the year was out. I’m certainly glad that I did. “Beasts of the Southern Wild” is a challenging, moving, thought-provoking film that certainly deserves to be included in the discussion of the year’s best.
