The Golden Briefcase - Reflecting on 2013 in Film

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim and Jeremy are joined by our own top man here at FirstShowing, Alex Billington, to go through one final recap of 2013 in film, a look back at this past year. As usual, the guys venture away from the traditional Top 10 and go with different categories such as the Biggest Disappointment, Best Male & Female Performances and Best Score/Soundtrack and so on. The three shuffle through what was actually a surprisingly good year in film to find their personal picks for the various categories. Listen in as the guys touch on some truly great gems from 2013's excellent cinematic offerings.
