Favourite Films of 2013

I wasn't sure if I'd end up doing a list this year, but caved when it hit me that I wouldn't have a list. I also always name it Favourite Films, and not Best Films. These were the films that I loved this year. They made me smile, think, cry, laugh, and find inspiration. I didn't get out to a lot of major films, so this will be a list that's very different from everyone's Top 10s. Lots of docs, of course - 12 of them out of 20! Found that I couldn't surmise how I felt about each one, so there's no snippet of info on why I chose these. Feel free to leave a comment and I'll gladly talk about it, though! Hope you enjoy it!  :)

  1. "Shepard & Dark"? That one was way too depressing for me. But I'm with you on "After Tiller". That was amazing and gave one a lot to think on.
