2012 Lists & Awards

[Note: We classify films by their theatrical release anywhere in the world, so certain films we saw in 2012 (like “The Deep Blue Sea,” “Mozart’s Sister” or “A Simple Life”) are classed as 2011, because they were released in their home countries in that year. A festival screening does not count as a theatrical release.]
