Alright, I drew the short straw, which means that after today’s 10 list we can put 2012 away for good. Until the Oscars. It was an exceptional year for film, as we saw new offerings from Paul Thomas Anderson, Wes Anderson, Quentin Tarantino, Peter Jackson, Rian Johnson and so many more. Ben Affleck proved himself.
