We’ve had personal roundups of the best films of 2013, but what of the popular vote? Every year, and 2013 was no exception, posters on the MostlyFilm talkboard vote for their favourite films of that year. 2012’s list is here. 2013’s list is sitting just below the jump. Can you resist clicking for more? We can only hope not!
The last part of our review of the year looks at, well, Film. Top ten lists, musings, and ramblings follow after the jump from Matthew Turner, Laura Morgan, Gareth Negus, Ron Swanson and Indy Datta. If you want to know which one of them actually chose Run For Your Wife, you’ll have to go past the jump. Try the Pavlova.
‘Ron Swanson’ reports from the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.
The 66th Cannes Film Festival ended just less than a week ago. In that time, I’ve attempted to clarify my feelings about what I thought, as I left France, was the strongest festival I’ve attended so far. It turns out that I agree with my younger self. This year saw three absolutely exceptional films, as well as a handful of other superb efforts. To clarify, the three best films I saw, The Past, The Great Beauty and Blue is the Warmest Colour elicited the strongest reaction from me since A Separation, which I believe is the best film of the past ten years or so.
