Top 10 of 2012

I'm sorry I can't be posting more.  My wrist is slowly getting stronger, but is not at a point where it can help me type yet. Perhaps in another week or so.  Sill, I wanted to get my top 10 of 2012 posted since it isn't too much work for a one-handed man to do.  You'll likely notice that half the movies on my list are technically from 2011.  I'm adding them to this list temporarily until I can see more that are technically from 2012 (e.g. LIKE SOMEONE IN LOVE, SPRING BREAKERS, THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES, TO THE WONDER, etc.)  I don't even think I have 10 films from 2012 that I like without these great 2011 titles, so they are helpful for now.  I tried to only stick with 2011 films that I saw this past year, which means I didn't include THE KID WITH A BIKE since I saw it in December of 2011.

I'd write more if I could, but here she be regardless:

1. The Master (Paul Thomas Anderson)
2. The Turin Horse (Bela Tarr)
3. This is Not a Film (Jafar Panahi, Mojtaba Mirtahmasb)
4. Zero Dark Thirty (Kathryn Bigelow)
5. Oslo, August 31st (Joachim Trier)
6. Tabu (Miguel Gomes)
7. Holy Motors (Leos Carax)
8. Cosmopolis (David Cronenberg)
9. Amour (Michael Haneke)
10. Moonrise Kingdom (Wes Anderson)

11. Damsels in Distress (Whit Stillman) & Lincoln (Steven Spielberg)

Honorable Mention: Brave (Mark Andrews, Brenda Chapman), Looper (Rian Johnson), The Dark Knight Rises (Christopher Nolan), The Innkeepers (Ti West)
