Without further ado, the Best Films of 2013

After a few delays, I’ve finally published my Top 10 for 2013. There are a number of themes running through the list: queers, lakes, explicit sex, hauntings, teachers, French cinema, among others. I decided not to bother trying to see everything I wanted to see before making the list, but with that said, I’ll always accept suggestions if you got ‘em. Expect a few honorable mention posts in the near future. Click here to read the posts in descending order.

2. Blue Is the Warmest Color (La vie d’Adèle - chapitres 1 et 2), Abdellatif Kechiche, France/Belgium/Spain
3. Top of the Lake, d. Jane Campion, Garth Davis, UK/New Zealand/Australia
