David Hudson shares his twelve favourite films of 2012, along with some thoughts on the year, which you should consider checking out. Hudson closes out his piece with a Notebook-related nod:
"If I were asked if I happened to have a favorite film critic of 2012, my spontaneous reply would be, yes. Ignatiy Vishnevetsky. Read him on The Master. Read him on Barbara. And for cinema’s sake, read him on Zero Dark Thirty."
