This year's best list has been a really difficult one to settle on. 2013 had the great 'problem' of too many wonderful films - there were so many, I could have done a top 25 list! My list includes films either released in 2013 or ones I saw at festivals during the year. I've left out a number of terrific ones that I saw this year that don't officially open until 2014 - including the magnificent Inside Llewyn Davis.
