Last time around I chronicled the stinkers I looked at in the last 12 months, and I wasn’t short of options. However, this time around, I’m looking at the best films that I saw in 2012 and turning out a top 10.
I did see some absolutely brilliant movies, and they were pleasingly spread out throughout the year- there wasn’t a massive congestion of them in one month, so it allowed me respite from the seemingly endless parade of dreck that I usually sit through. As the year went on, actually, my focus shifted and I started doing the censorship essays. As a result of this, the quality of film actually rose as I picked incredibly famous examples of movies to fit in as the example of the essay, and it’s no surprise to see several of them make my final shortlist.
Through my sheer exhaustive dedication to procrastination, my thunder has once more been stolen by Jarv’s review (found here). His is a good review, and he makes many of the same points that I was going to. So while touching on those briefly, I will try to make this a review that works alongside his one, so as not to repeat and bore you all to tears.
