a list of 250 titles
...In alphabetical order.

I've done pretty well this year - two film festivals, Sydney and Melbourne helped bump up the numbers on this list, as did some long haul flights.

There have been some real wonders - Beasts of the Southern Wild, Shame and The Master amongst them and some real duds - To Rome With Love, Damsels in Distress and including, sadly, too many Australian duds - Mental, A Few Best Men & Hail.

Most of these films were seen on the big screen, including the Qatsi trilogy with a live accompaniment by Phillip Glass & Orchestra playing the original music and The Master in it's original 70mm format. Many were seen on DVD, some on TV and some on the smallest of screens - a seat back airline screen.

Most were first time viewings - some were revisits for the first time in years - Point Break, Picnic at Hanging Rock and some are regular viewings - Big Business, I am Love.

In total 253 films.

And as for the best - well, my top 5, in no particular order:

Searching for Sugarman
Shame
Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present
The Imposter
Beasts of the Southern Wild
