Roger Avary's Favorite Films of 2013

I'm film director & writer Roger Avary, a voting Academy member, and of the films of 2013 that I've seen these were my favorites, in order of preference.

I'm struck by the realization that my top ten favorite films all have a common theme of living a life that's not entirely your own or a lie. It would seem that it's in the zeitgeist this year.
