Shame no-one found room for "A Royal Affair". Mads Mikkelsen is an extraordinary talent. Personal favourite films of the year were the aforementioned and "The Hunt". "Carancho", "Hunky Dory", "Headhunters', "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen", The Angels' Share", "Monsieur Lazhar", "Le Havre".....so many great films this year, so few of them mentioned!!!
The best of 2012: film
The Time Out film team reflect on the movies of the past 12 months
As 2012 draws to a close, Time Out’s film critics offer up their five favourite films of the year, plus their least favourite movie, a film hero, a favourite scene and a quick look ahead to 2013.
It’s been a very strong year for international cinema, and our critics’ lists reflect that, with the French-Austrian co-production ‘Amour’, Turkish cop drama ‘Once Upon a Time in Anatolia’, American indie ‘The Master’, Portuguese oddity ‘Tabu’ and homegrown Olympic tie-in documentary ‘London: The Modern Babylon’ proving the most popular overall.
