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.
1. Cloud Atlas
2. Blue Jasmine
3. Django Unchained
4. The Rocket
5. Stories We Tell
7. Silver Linings Playbook
8. Captain Phillips
9. The Railway Man
10. The Broken Circle Breakdown
