The American Film Institute give their two cents when it comes to the best films of the year. But this list is only for American movies, remember.
At present, only four of these are on my list (find it here – sorry, Nolan), but I’ve yet to see five of them, so we’ll see how that changes.
US/UK release dates aside, the list is far from exciting and holds the main Oscar frontrunners alongside indie darlings Silver Linings Playbook, Beasts Of The Southern Wild and Moonrise Kingdom which are undoubtedly guaranteed nominations in some form or another. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for Looper, hey?
Check out the AFI’s top ten (in alphabetical order) below:
Beasts Of The Southern Wild
The Dark Knight Rises
Life Of Pi
Silver Linings Playbook
Zero Dark Thirty
