Speaking at a Bafta-organised forum a fortnight ago, director Peter Kosminsky said he'd had an epiphany. Like a great many TV fans right now, he'd stayed up late watching back-to-back episodes of House of Cards, the new political drama starring Kevin Spacey that is currently enjoying a Killing-esque vogue. "I realised," said Kosminsky, "that I was watching the end of an era."
The end of an era because House of Cards was commissioned, produced and funded to the tune of $100m (£64m) by online subscription-service Netflix, which started life as a DVD rental outfit. All of the drama's 13 episodes were available to view as soon as it was launched at »

As 2012 draws to a close, we're already casting our eye towards next year's cinematic offerings, but before 2013 gets underway it's time to reflect on the past twelve months as we present our selection of the very best films to arrive on screens over the past year.
Like previous years, the team here at Flickering Myth have put together individual lists of our personal favourites, which we’ve used to produce an overall selection of our Top Ten Movies of 2012. The list is compiled by UK release dates, so with several of 2012's big hitters yet to arrive on these shores there was no chance for the likes of Cloud Atlas, Django Unchained, Hitchcock, Les Miserables, Lincoln, Wreck It-Ralph and Zero Dark Thirty to make the cut (this year, at least), while Ang Lee's Life of Pi probably arrived just a little too late to make a real splash.
