The Master Tops Sight & Sound’s Best Of 2012
by Travis Leamons on December 1, 2012

Less than one month until the start of 2013. That can only mean one thing: critics everywhere will be compiling their “Best of 2012″ lists over these next few weeks. The staff at Inside Pulse Movies won’t release our until the end of the month because there’s still a number of films that could potentially find placement on some year-end lists.

Sight & Sound, which made news several months ago when a poll conducted every decade to determine what is the Greatest Film of All Time saw Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo dethrone Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane. For the magazine’s Best of 2012 poll, Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master tops the list. American cinema had a banner year both financially and film-making wise. S&S also included Benh Zeitlin’s Beasts of the Southern Wild and Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom on its year-end list. Internationally, Holy Motors and David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis got some love, though with the latter I don’t care to ever see Twilight‘s Robert Pattinson having his prostate examined in an extended scene with him befuddled to the fact that it is “asymmetrical.”

Here’s the complete Sight & Sound Best Of 2012 list.

1. The Master (Paul Thomas Anderson, USA)
2. Tabu (Miguel Gomes, Portugal/Germany/France)
3. Amour (Michael Haneke, France/Germany/Austria)
4. Holy Motors (Leos Carax, France/Germany)
5. Beasts of the Southern Wild (Benh Zeitlin, USA)
= Berberian Sound Studio (Peter Strickland, UK/Germany)
7. Moonrise Kingdom (Wes Anderson, USA)
8. Beyond the Hills (Christian Mungiu, Romania/France/Belgium)
= Cosmopolis (David Cronenberg, Canada/France/Portugal/Italy)
= Once Upon a Time in Anatolia (Nuri Bilge Ceylan, Turkey/Bosnia & Herzegovina)
= This is Not A Film (Jafar Pahani & Mojtaba Mirtahmaseb, Iran)
