Mike's Best of 2012

1. Zero Dark Thirty
2. Killer Joe
3. Cloud Atlas
4. The Master
5. The Perks of Being a Wallflower
6. Safety Not Guaranteed
7. The Silver Linings Playbook
8. Argo
9. The Dark Knight Rises
10. Frankenweenie
11. Robot & Frank
12. Take This Waltz
13. Jeff Who Lives At Home
14. Beasts of the Southern Wild
15. Django Unchained
16. Arbitrage
17. Prometheus
18. Ted
19. A Late Quartet
20. The Loneliest Planet

Honorable mention: It aired as a 3-part special in the UK but is being released as a feature in the US in 2013, so I didn't include 56 Up, the latest in the outstanding Seven Up series. Aside from that, I also really liked: 21 Jump Street, Amour, Compliance, Dark Horse, A Fantastic Fear of Everything, The Five-Year Engagement, The Impossible, Killing Them Softly, Lincoln, Moonrise Kingdom, Not Fade Away, On the Road, ParaNorman, Promised Land, Red Hook Summer, and Wanderlust. And there were segments in Holy Motors that I absolutely loved, but then there were some parts that I didn't, so that one didn't make my top 20 either.
