So it’s around half way through the year and a lot of people start churning out ‘best of 2013 so far’ lists. As before, there’ll be numerous films I haven’t seen yet, as well as plenty included that were released in the USA last year. But I’m not in the USA so they’re all 2013 films to me. On the other hand, The Hunt was only just released in the US, and would be on my list if I were there. Incidentally, I knew the number 1 and 2 spots instantly but had to put some thought into the others.
4. Zero Dark Thirty
3. Before Midnight
2. Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God
1. Cloud Atlas
Honourable mentions; Flight, Django Unchained, The King of Pigs
