A great year for movies, especially with what came out overseas. I decided that their were 8 films that I considered to be leaps ahead of the rest, so instead of adding 2 to make an even 10 I give you write ups on 8 and two honorable mentions. There was only one film this year that I regret not being able to see before making this list which is Haneke’s Amour, but that is beyond my control.
I only really loved a few films in 2011 but 2012 has me salivating with movies coming out from my favorite modern directors and a few films that have been building a slow buzz with their limited release in other countries. The movie descriptions come from IMDB along with my feelings/excitement for their release.
