To clarify, this is my top ten today at this very moment. It's going to change. Even as I wrote out the below list, I was dramatically shifting these worthy films up and down. For one thing I want — no, need — to see all of these again and again. Because the consensus this time is right on. 2013 was a fantastic year at the movies. Dozens delighted me (and I'll shine a light on some of those at a later date) but these ten are the ones that I feel most confident will stand the test of time.

10. Captain Phillips

9. Pain & Gain

So much sweat, »
