Top Ten Films of 2012

Below are the films that have remained in my mind throughout 2012. I should add that I have yet to see The Master, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Tabu, and Sightseers, which after speaking to people about them, one or two might well enter my top 10 by the end of the year, but for now they are:


Berberian Sound Studio

Once Upon A Time in Anatolia

The Hunt

Holy Motors

Searching for Sugar Man

Martha Marcy May Marlene

The Turin Horse


This Is Not A Film



I’d also like to include a film that has yet to have a full theatrical release: Entity. This film is currently doing the festival circuit and the sound design by ZnO is second to none. To quote from a recent review of the film:

“the sound design is the real heart of the film.  It is, without a doubt, one of the best uses of sound in an independent feature that I have experienced.  The cinema rumbled and creaked along with the film asylum and frequently built to borderline painful ear-piercing screeches that put the audience in the same space as the on-screen characters.”
