‘Holy Motors’ Tops Film Comment’s Top 50 Films Of 2012, ‘The Master,’ ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ & ‘Amour’ In Top 10

'Holy Motors' Tops Film Comment's Top 50 Films Of 2012, 'The Master,' 'Moonrise Kingdom' & 'Amour' In Top 10

Another awards season week draws to a close, and another poll drops, this time from Film Comment. And a few cinephile favorites feature in the top ten of a fifty strong list.

Leos Carax‘s oddball love letter to the movies, “Holy Motors,” has topped the list with Paul Thomas Anderson‘s “The Master” and Wes Anderson‘s “Moonrise Kingdom” coming in second and third, with Michael Haneke‘s “Amour” helping to round out the top ten. But with fifty slots available, this end-of-the-year survey of film critics, journalists, film section editors, and past and present contributors runs in danger of basically just being a list of every good movie that came out in 2012. But, a closer look is a reminder of how much great cinema is happening on the fringes, in arthouses and other corners of the cinematic world. It certainly makes us want to catch up with the movies that have passed us by.

So, take a look below and as always, let us know your thoughts in the comments. And in case you’re wondering, “The Dark Knight Rises” came in 49th.For all The Playlist’s year-end coverage make sure to follow all our Best Of 2012 features.
