Do you ever get panicky when you think about how many great films you haven’t seen? How many films have just slipped under your radar? Sometimes I do. Whether they be undiscovered gems, critically lauded hits or cult classics, there are so many unseen films. Last year I did my best ‘new to me films’ by quarter, but this year I’m putting them in one big post. These are a mix of festival titles, older films and films which won’t be released until 2014 in Australia which I caught during 2013 (although some of these films have had or will get a cinema release, they weren’t widely released here in 2013). In no particular order (although the film in the above picture is my clear #1), my top 20 ‘new to me’ films are after the jump.
