The first quarter of 2012 has seen me (Sam) see 96 films – 10 of those were re-watches (excluding the opening sequence of Drive, which I watched a dozen times), and 86 were new to me (either viewed in cinema or on dvd). Check out my 10 favourite picks after the jump!

Below are my top 10 views (in order from #1-10) for this year so far. Only films I watched for the first time [ever] between January and March could be considered. Click on the film’s title to go to a review of that film (reviews are a mix of this site and other reviews).

Take Shelter


Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills 


A Man Escaped 




Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory

Paradise Lost 3

Tinker Tailor Solider Spy 


The Raid


Let the Right One In 




Hugo (3D)


The Raid, Shame, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Weekend, and Hugo (3D) were seen in cinema, while the other films were seen on dvd/screener.

  1. Holy crap! 96 films in the last 3 months?!?!?

    Damn that’s impressive!

    Nice work, Sam. Truly nice work!

  2. Tomas Alfredson has done well, then, with two films on that list.

    I love both of them too.

    • Ha! I didn’t even realise. Both films are beautifully shot and have great atmosphere. Can’t wait to see what he does next!
