Ranking 2012

Rather than a Top Ten (or 30) like I usually do, thought I might as well go ahead and rank every movie released in 2012 that I saw. Some great, some not so great, some abysmal. Here they are in that order.

More films will be added as they are viewed.

Hooray to LetterBoxd for making this task much easier now.

**as of yet unwatched films that could be high-ranking contenders:
Rust and Bone
A Royal Affair
Cosmopolis
Paranorman
Leviathan
The Sessions
Searching for Sugar Man
Robot and Frank
Not Fade Away
