BEST OF 2012: MOVIES

the six films that were well worth the price of admission to see.

Rust & Bone
"Marion Cotillard's talent is never-ending and this performance proves it without question." --Ali Hoffman, web editor

Wreck It Ralph

"You know what was a great movie? Wreck It Ralph!"--Dani Stahl, style editor-at-large

Quartet

"It's an all-British cast of senior citizens who play retired opera songs--which might sound really boring, but I laughed, cried, and have since become a season's ticket holder at Lincoln Center for the first time ever."--Ray Siegel, senior web editor

Beasts of the Southern Wild

"I was amazed by the way that director Benh Zeitlin addressed these really grand emotional themes--home, family, loss--in such a fierce and direct way. An added plus: Now you can buy its gorgeous score on vinyl from the indie label Thirty3 and a Third." --Mallory Rice, senior editor

Titanic
in 3-D
"[No comment]"--Blair Waters, NYLON TV editor

A Separation

"From first frame to last, this movie is painful in all the right ways. And no, you won't be able to sit anywhere but on the edge of your seat. Just a warning." --Rebecca Willa Davis, executive web editor
