Independent Cinema - Sam's Top Ten Films of 2012

Independent Cinema writes: While 2012 marked the end of many lucrative (and some interminable) franchises, including the Twilight Saga and The Dark Knight trilogy, it was also a year punctuated by a host of entertaining revivals, a handful of impressive surprises and even a few truly outrageous and original works. All in all, it’s been quite a good year in film. As I did my best to catch up on all 2012 had to offer, I unfortunately had to make a few concessions. Nevertheless, with the exception of maybe 2 or 3 films (Michael Haneke’s Amour and Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master being the most glaring omissions), I’ve generally seen all the films that appealed to me and a handful that originally didn’t. Choosing only 10 films turned out to be quite the task however and a number of films were therefore pulled from the list and relegated to an Honorable Mentions list. That’s not to say they’re bad films; on the contrary, do your best to go see them if you haven’t already! Without further ado, here are my picks for 2012. (Culture)
