AvsJoe's list of WIFF 2012 movies that he regrets missing (in alphanumerical order)

by AvsJoe | created - 11 Nov 2012 | updated - 22 Nov 2016 | Public

I was only able to see one film this year due to financial limitations: the 2012 documentary Detropia. I have since watched Killer Joe and Intouchables.
