It's almost unfair to use Be My Baby in a film. It automatically makes that film so much better than other films. It's that good of a song

Girl Walk//All Day
I can't even begin to describe how much I love Girl Walk//All Day. It's by far my favorite film of the year. It's just the most joyous thing. A total blast of optimism, movement and music.

Like Someone in Love
With only two noms per person, I've mostly played it really safe on this thread so far... making sure I pick things that I don't want to see missing the list and giving preference to films we all at least have the opportunity to watch before we pick winners. But coming out of TIFF, this was my favorite festival from the film and I'm finally getting a chance to give it some love.
It has all that narrative game-playing that Kiaro does so well but with the lightest of touches in the unlikeliest of romantic comedies.

I didn't think it was terrible, but it's very problematic and just kind of passable as a whole. Much better than The Town, though.

It sort of surprises me how much The Town sucked, I quite enjoyed Gone Baby Gone, he showed potential with that.

He made the mistake of starting to cast himself in the leads instead of his brother. Which is not just a matter of him as an actor sucking in that film, but also spreading himself thin, presumably.

His beard in Argo is a work of art though, perfection.

I don't think anyone really likes Affleck as an actor anyways. I still like Gone Baby Gone a lot, and I wish he would make another film like that.

Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Good Will Hunting, Dogma, The Town...

But he's especially good in Hollywoodland.

I've seen The Town, but I'm inexperienced with Kevin Smith. Can't say that I like Clerks or Chasing Amy. Amy might be my favorite performance of his even though I didn't like the film.

I'll add Hollywoodland to my watch list over on mubi

Right. My endorsements of Affleck in those films shouldn't be conflated with endorsement of the films themselves, though I do kinda like pre-2002 Kevin Smith movies.

He likes Paul Thomas Anderson and came off as a pretty laid back cool person in that director's roundtable thing or as I like to call it Quentin Tarantino and Ben Affleck talk while Ang Lee and Gus Van Sant take a nap.

Anna Karenina | Levin's second marriage proposal to Kitty

One of my favorite passages of Tolstoy's book became one of my favorite scenes of the adaptation and of 2012, substituting crayons with letter blocks but catching the charm, humor and tenderness of Tolstoy perfectly.

Holy Motors | Limos Talking
Lots of films prominently featuring limos this year but only one of them has them chatting with each other! Carax ends his exuberantly inventive film on such a hilarious note that simultaneously comments on how humans and machines interact. Also, I genuinely enjoyed how well those lights matched the words :P!

Killer Joe | Dinner Scene
The gleeful absurdity of the final scene in Killer Joe is what really made the film become one of my favorites of the year. McConaughey and Haden Church are just hilarious in the closing moments here and I don't think I've ever been more happy to see someone beat to death. How lovely.

Haywire | Hotel Room Fight Scene
Sodie made two great movies this year and I can't let this thread go by without mentioning this one. One of my favorite things about this movie is the way Soderbergh shoots these fight scenes.. this one in particular. No music, no closeups and barely any cuts.
