  • I haven’t decided it yet, many movies still left to watch and many more to review first.

    For now, my top 5 looks like this:

    1. Zero Dark Thirty
    2. Amour
    3. Holy Motors
    4. Moonrise Kingdom
    5. Beasts of the Southern Wild

  • Late to the game, but my favorite ended up being Seven Psychopaths. It was immensely funny, had some thought to it, and I was attached to all of the characters despite each being “psychopaths” in one way or another.
