The Alamo Drafthouse's Collective Picks for the 10 Best Films of 2013
If you're not aware, The Alamo Drafthouse is a cinephiles best friends. From their love of indie movies, to screenings of classics from years past (not to mention innovative offerings like the Anchorfan Pass for unlimited screenings of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues), the Drafthouse is a mecca for movie fans. We only wish they had more locations around the country. Even so, we can get a taste of the films that really turned the crank of these cinephiles with a list of their collective favorite films. The Alamo Drafthouse team includes the programming offices from each theater, Drafthouse Films, Mondo, Badass Digest, Fantastic Fest and more, and Movies.com tallied all of their favorite films to make a single collective list. Look below!
Here's the collective list of the Best Films of 2013 from the Alamo Drafthouse team:
10. Frances Ha
9. Before Midnight
8. Pain & Gain
7. 12 Years a Slave
6. Inside Llewyn Davis
5. The Act of Killing
3. Spring Breakers
1. The Wolf of Wall Street
It's a pretty solid list, but Spring Breakers seems a bit high. Of course, it's nice to see Her get so much love and we're glad Frances Ha made the end of the list. If you'd like some brief praise for each of these films from a variety of the team members involved, check out the full post at Movies.com. Otherwise, we've got our own favorite films of the year coming later today, beginning with the personal picks from Jeremy Kirk (of The Golden Briefcase) and our awards expert Joey Magidson. Then we'll have Ethan Anderton's picks for his favorite films of the year as well.
Also, don't forget our list of this year's best performances (for both actors and actresses) along with his 20 Favorite Scenes of 2013. In addition, we also tossed up my picks for the 15 Best Official Movie Posters and Tim Buel's 8 Favorite Horror Films. Jeremy Kirk also counted down his 10 Favorite Soundtracks/Scores of 2013, and Ethan Anderton listed his 6 Most Hilarious Comedies of 2013, along with a reflection on his 13 Most Anticipated Films of 2013. What do you think of The Alamo Drafthouse's Top 10 of 2013?
