Roger Ebert’s Top Ten Films of 2012:


  1. Argo dir. by Ben Affleck - “… it is above all else a movie—pure, strong and sound.”
  2. Life of Pi dir. by Ang Lee - “…a miraculous achievement of storytelling and a landmark of visual mastery.”
  3. Lincoln dir. by Steven Spielberg - “…performed so powerfully by Daniel Day-Lewis…”
  4. End of Watch dir. by David Ayer - “…one of the best police movies in recent years, a virtuoso joining of performances and often startling action…”
  5. Arbitrage dir. by Nicholas Jarecki - “We tend to identify with the leading character of a film, even if he is a heartless bastard. Few films illustrate this curiosity better than Nicholas Jarecki’s Arbitrage…”
  6. Flight dir. by Robert Zemeckis - “…a brave and tortured performance by Denzel Washington—one of his very best.”
  7. The Sessions dir. by Ben Lewin - “…John Hawkes has emerged in recent years as an actor of amazing versatility.”
