So here we are again, another year and another top of the year list series.
2013 was particular because it had everything in arts, so this are my 13 favorite films of 2013.
13) The Counselor
Many hated it, I actually liked it, found it as an interesting portrait about bad choices and ego in general.
A cinematic achievement, a great performance.
11) Frances Ha
The film about real life of the year that it’s actually believable and truthful.
Amazing cinematography, powerful performances, awesome score and a remarkable direction and above all a great film about a rivals.
9) This Is The End
The surprise of the year.
A great thriller, many say it was too long, but that is part of it, to have you at the edge of your seat for about 2 and a half hours is an achievement for the film, amazing performances and outstanding cinematography complete this dark journey about our will to do things.
7) The Place Beyond The Pines
A crime saga in just one film, outstanding is what I say about this.
6) Before Midnight
I watched the first 2 parts during the course of the year, it kept going better and better, this conclusion felt like the absolute film of the trilogy, so real and in a cold way very truthful.
5) The Bling Ring
What can I say? wow! like The Social Network, this is a film that defines a generation in a very stylish way.
4) The Spectacular Now
An honest look at not wanting to grew up.
3) American Hustle
The funniest film of 2013.
It left me breathless
1) 12 Years a Slave
Yes I put 2 films on number 1.
This portrait of slavery is the best one I’ve seen thanks to what the director wanted us to see but is the powerful performance of it’s leading actor the thing that sticks with you after it ends.
A film that came in 2013 due to the fuckin’ film distributors, anyway.
This is an amazing piece of cinema, a character study of the best kind and above all an analysis on society.
