The American Film Institute has announced its top ten movies of 2012 which are (obviously listed alphabetically) Argo, Beasts of the Southern Wild, The Dark Knight Rises, Django Unchained, Les Miserables, Life of Pi, Lincoln, Moonrise Kingdom, Silver Linings Playbook (will Glenn Kenny and Kris Tapley take the AFI to task? are you guys men with serious backbone or are you scurrying mice?) and Zero Dark Thirty. The picks largely reflect the taste of AFI vice-chairperson Tom Pollock, but he’s a wise and perceptive (if political-minded) fellow so that’s cool.
