The best of 2013 Film


2013 was an absolute embarrassment of riches for the cinema. Certainly the best year in this young decade, I'd say the best of the last five. I can't confine the list to a mere 10 titles since some films at the bottom of the list would have made the top ten in either of the last two years. Even still needing to see several major titles (most notably Her, A Touch of Sin, The Past, The Wind Rises, The Great Beauty, Faust, Let The Fire Burn, and Short Term 12) I think this is a fantastic group of movies that I struggled to narrow down. Film awards are included below where equally stunning work was on display both behind and in front of the camera.

1.) At Berkeley (Frederick Wiseman)
2.) Gravity (Alfonso Cuaron)
3.) Before Midnight (Richard Linklater)
4.) 12 Years A Slave (Steve McQueen)
5.) Reality (Matteo Garrone)
6.) Post Tenebras Lux (Carlos Reygadas)
7.) Drug War (Johnnie To)
8.) Blancanieves (Pablo Berger)
9.) It’s Such A Beautiful Day (Don Hertzfeldt)
10.) Inside Llewyn Davis (Joel and Ethan Coen)
11.) Upstream Color (Shane Carruth)
12.) American Hustle (David O. Russell)
13.) All is Lost (J.C. Chandor)
14.) Prince Avalanche (David Gordon Green)
15.) Blue is the Warmest Color (Abdellatif Kechiche)
16.) Prisoners (Denis Villeneuve)
17.) The Gatekeepers (Dror Moreh)
18.) Leviathan (Verena Paravel & Lucien Castaing-Taylor)
19.) The Place Beyond The Pines (Derek Cianfrance)
20.) Mud (Jeff Nichols)
21.) The Spectacular Now (James Ponsoldt)
22.) Horses of God (Nabil Ayouch)
23.) The Bling Ring (Sofia Coppola)
24.) The Act of Killing (Joshua Oppenheimer)
25.) Stories We Tell (Sarah Polley)

Honorable mention (other great movies): To The Wonder, This is The End, Ain't Them Bodies Saints, Shadow Dancer, Nebraska, The Wolf of Wall Street, The Retrieval, Little Hope Was Arson, Enough Said, Mother of George

Special mention for popcorn movies that can't compete with the above mentioned, but that were made with an intelligence or technical skill far above most blockbusters and that despite some reservations I thoroughly enjoyed: Pain & Gain (you read that right, I liked a Michael Bay movie), Fast & Furious 6, Oblivion, Man of Steel, You're Next, The Lone Ranger

Here's hoping 2014 is half as good and much thanks to the programmers of the Austin Film Society, SXSW, Austin Film Festival, and Alamo Drafthouse for the opportunity to see so many of these great films I otherwise would never have the opportunity to.

Mood: Happy

The good news is I'm picking up Dustin Hoffman from the airport tonight. The bad news is he's not flying Qantas. Let's hope he makes it.

This pic is awesome, bro! And a great pic to boot. Congrats! (I still have that pic of you chasing Kevin Smith down some escalators at Comic Con about 10 years ago, man...what a difference)

Grown Ups 2 beating Pacific Rim at the box-office doesn't signal the death knell of intelligent audiences to me so much as the heralding of a movie about giant robots fighting giant monsters as the pinnacle of originality by so many serious moviegoers does. If merely not being a sequel, remake, or comic book adaptation qualifies something as excitingly original, then the bar has been set far too low for my liking.

Happy birthday to my boss, Mr. Robert Rodriguez. At only 45, he's been in this business half his life and directed 18 (!) films. Rebel Without A Crew was instrumental when I first read it in 6th grade and he remains an inspiration to every kid from nowhere with no money who burns to pick up a camera and realize a dream.

ugh, I hate that you have already seen so many of these. You must have hit up a festival, right?
