After a busy but excellent Christmas, Seema and I hunkered down last night and saw perhaps our last film for 2012; Cosmopolis and you can read my mini musing here.
2012 has been an curious cinema going year for me. I found it difficult to to get out and see many films (study commitments took precedence) and I don’t expect next year to be any easier. However, I did stumble on a couple of gems that easily are my “best of 2012” … no other films come close to Leos Carax’s Holy Motors and Benh Zeitlin’s Beasts of the Southern Wild. These are my top two for 2012 and I can’t split them despite their disparity. Some films that I have missed that I feel might have expanded my top two are, Michael Haneke’s Amour, and Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master. I shall hopefully see them in the new year.
Happy New Year everyone!
