My Top 10 Films of 2013

It’s that time of year again, so here are my top 10 films of 2013.

This year I have watched more films than I ever have in a year before, reaching a total of 771 films (82 released that year and 665 for the first time). My most watched directors were Joel and Ethan Coen and my most watched actors were Robert De Niro and John Goodman.

This list obviously changes as I catch up with more films, so for an updated list you can visit my Letterboxd page.

Film Review: Cloud Atlas

(Published on Lost In The Multiplex)

Based on the 2004 book written by David Mitchell, and written and directed by Lana and Andy Wachowski and Tom Tykwer, Cloud Atlas intertwines six subtly interconnected stories, spanning from the 19th century to a post-apocalyptic future.

The film follows lawyer Adam Ewing (Jim Sturgess) who is travelling on a 19th century merchant ship, 20th century music composer Robert Frobisher (Ben Whishaw) who’s trying to compose his own masterpiece, journalist Luisa Rey (Halle Berry) who’s trying to uncover a story in the 1970’s, present day Timothy Cavendish (Jim Broadbent) who’s being held against his will in a nursing home, genetically engineered fabricant Sonmi-451 (Doona Bae) who’s being interviewed before her execution in a dystopian future, and Valley tribesmen Zachry (Tom Hanks), who’s living in a distant, post-apocalyptic society 106 winters after The Fall.

(Bi-weekly feature written for Lost In The Multiplex)

I think this has to be one of my favourite round-ups of new film trailers this week, with the promise of some brilliant looking films set to be released over the following year. With the exciting teaser for Zack Snyder’s Man Of Steel and a spectacular first trailer for the upcoming adaptation of David Mitchell’s highly acclaimed novel Cloud Atlas, we also have a couple of trailers for some of this year’s Sundance’s favourites including Ry Russo-Young’s moving Nobody Walks and Leslye Headland’s very funny Bachelorette. This really is a great collection of film trailers this week and I hope that by the end of this feature you are left just as excited for nearly all of them as much as I am!
