Edgar Wright - Gravity Top 10

Cuaron tops yet another Top 10 list. This time it's a Best of 2013 list from British director Edgar Wright, who brought us The World's End earlier this summer. Wright spoke with DigitalSpy in an interview back in November and was pressured asked to reveal his Top 10 of 2013 (so far), and his list is rather impressive and refreshing to hear, even if it's not entirely finished yet. He first includes a disclaimer about films he has yet to see, but goes on to say that The Spectacular Now is a great double feature with The World's End, he saw enjoyed it so much he saw Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine twice in theaters, and he calls Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity an "extraordinary" movie, which of course it is. See his full list of 2013 favorites below.

Here are the Top 10 films Edgar Wright names as his favorites of 2013 (as of November 26 when asked):

10. Rush (dir. Ron Howard)
9. The Bling Ring (dir. Sofia Coppola)
8. Prisoners (dir. Denis Villeneuve)
7. The Spectacular Now (dir. James Ponsoldt)
6. Short Term 12 (dir. Destin Cretton)
5. Behind the Candelabra (dir. Steven Soderbergh)
4. Before Midnight (dir. Richard Linklater)
3. Blue Jasmine (dir. Woody Allen)
2. Spring Breakers (dir. Harmony Korine)
1. Gravity (dir. Alfonso Cuaron)

Update! Edgar has tweeted a note to go along with this, since his list is not officially, fully final and he still has some watching/catching up to do. He writes via his twitter account @edgarwright:

You can also watch the video interview with Edgar where he breaks down his Top 10, posted via DigitalSpy:

Well, there you have it. Quite a unique list but almost exactly what I would expect from Edgar, with the wild Harmony Korine movie (which he "really, really adored") plus the two indie teen drama break-outs, Short Term 12 and The Spectacular Now, along with other greats like Gravity and Before Midnight and Rush and Prisoners. There are tons of outstanding movies this year, many to make sure you see, and I'm glad to see Edgar name a few that might not have been expected. As he mentions in the video he still has more movies to see late in the awards season which means it will likely change, especially with the ones he mentions (12 Years a Slave, Her, American Hustle and Blue is the Warmest Color). What do you think of his list?

      It's definitely an aquired taste. I didn't particularly enjoy it either, but there were some great aspects to it (James Franco's performance, a few sequences, overall atmosphere). But not enough to be one of my top fav's.

        The whole sucking a gun like it's a dick thing yeah not my taste. Or the anti-climactic ending, or the britney spears piano.....just no.

      I'm right with you YoungWerther. Although admittedly in my own personal case, it just may be I'm a little too old for all that dubstep and "wooohooo!"ing from annoying drunk ditzes. I don't get MTV either so there's that too.

    Thats very strange choice when he choose both Bling RIng & Spring Breakers because this two stay in front of eachother and totally different conception. Meanwhile i didnt think he sees this much of movies. Go back dude to the Ant-Man mr.Busy Man!!! from this list i say : Gravity Rush Prisoners Short Term 12 Before Midnight Spectacular Now Bling Ring Blue Jasmine Behind the Candelabra Spring Breakers
  • DAVIDPD

  • DavideCoppola
