Best Films of 2012

On the final day of the year when I know I cannot possibly squeeze in seeing another film, I’ve compiled the complete list of movies I have seen at the cinema in 2012.

Listed below, they are in order, my best film being “Amour”.  It dealt with a very heavy topic and was, in parts, a difficult slow watch but the power of this film directed by Michael Haneke was immense, no wonder it won the Palme d’Or.

There are plenty I never got to see, wonder what gems I missed?
