It’s that time of year again -- and no, we’re not talking about Thanksgiving stuffing and holiday shopping. Top 10 lists will overrun every entertainment news site, personal blog and Twitter feed for the next six weeks.

That bastion of film history and cinematic sophistication Cahiers du Cinéma has published its best-of-the-year list already, below. Some of its choices are somewhat predictable ("Gravity," "Blue is the Warmest Color"), and some not so much (Harmony Korine's divisive "Spring Breakers" comes in at number two).

See how the CdC’s judgments match up with your favorites from 2013.

1. "Stranger By the Lake," Alain Guiraudie

2. "Spring Breakers," Harmony Korine

3. "Blue is the Warmest Color," Abdellatif Kechiche

4. "Gravity," Alfonso Cuaron

5. "A Touch of Sin," Jia Zhang Ke

6. "Lincoln," Steven Spielberg

7. "La Jalousie," Philippe Garrel

8. "Nobody's Daughter Haewon," Hong Sang-soo

9. "You and the Night," Yann Gonzalez

10. "La Bataille de Solferino," Justine Triet
