2012 was colorful indeed; the year I know about Richard Parker, Michael Haneke’s romance horror, Zoe Kazan’s excellent script, getting to know Ridley Scott, the trio buddies dare enough to be themselves in high school, and many others. While I think there’s a bunch of films felt overrated, so they end up not being in my top 10 (sorry guys). A few from this list ended up having a personal value, especially in top 5. Pieta was added last minute and Prometheus is out from top 10.
While last year I was overwhelmed doing my top 20 movies, this time I decided to focus on my top 10 (I figured it’s more special that way). But if you want to know my top 30 movies in 2012, just look at my 2012 list in Letterboxd. PS : Sorry for the lateness, but all the time making the list is needed to make sure the top 10 won’t change in the future, considering the late new releases here in my place.
