by
Julien Faddoul


5. Moonrise Kingdom

For a romance which, from first shot to last, completely convinces in tone, aesthetic and significance.




4. Amour

For a devastating sonnet that never simplifies the entanglements of immense emotional pain that is inevitable for all of us.


.


3. Holy Motors

For a visionary dissection on cinematic storytelling that is both sombre and humorous and utterly irresistible.




2. Lincoln

For the year's most remarkably human endeavor. It's not only the year's highest accomplishment of craft, but also of the heart.
