The A.V. Club’s Best of 2013: ‘Before Midnight,’ ’12 Years a Slave,’ ‘Frances Ha’

The A.V. Club's Best of 2013: 'Before Midnight,' '12 Years a Slave,' 'Frances Ha'

The A.V. Club’s big list dropped today, with Before Midnight heading up their ranking of the best films of 2013. (I voted in the poll and contributed to several of the write-ups.) They’ve also posted the individual ballots, with special citations for performances of the year — including Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street and Zoe Kazan in the little-seen Some Girl(s) — overrated and underrated films, and “Future Films That Time Forgot,” most of which I’d be surprised if anyone remembers now. Here’s the list:

The A.V. Club’s Best Films of 2013

1. Before Midnight

2. 12 Years a Slave

3. Frances Ha

4. Leviathan

5. Computer Chess

6. The Act of Killing

10. No

One legitimate criticism of this list though, not a single European movie in it. Even the only foreign was coproduced by USA. Not too worldly, considering how many gems were made WORLDWIDE. I expected better from such sources. USA may have the biggest production along Bollywood, quantity doesnt make quality though.


This list is what happens when every ballot gets mailed in from a 5 block radius around the Bedford Avenue station on the L train. SMH
