    Ok, but I don't get this complaint. Why can't he like wildly different films? The year's best list doesn't need to be cohesive, afterall, it is a compilation of 10 different movies in which the only common thing between them is their individual greatness (in the listmaker's opinion).

    The first thing I learned from this list is that John Waters' is a big fan of Bruno Dumont.

    Waters's official post on his Top 10.

    1 SPRING BREAKERS (Harmony Korine) The best sexploitation film of the year has Disney tween starlets hilariously undulating, snorting cocaine, and going to jail in bikinis. What more could a serious filmgoer possibly want?

    I love that Blue Jasmine is making both Quentin Tarantino's list (number 3!), John Water's and Sight & Sound!

    Blue Jasmine is coming for your wigs, gurls

    Richard Corliss' Best Movies of 2013

    1. Gravity. "In depicting the fearful, beautiful reality of the space world above our world, Gravity reveals the glory of cinema’s future; it thrills on so many levels."

    2. The Great Beauty. "Giving even the cynics a faith in the vibrancy of movies, The Great Beauty is the year's grandest, most exhilarating film that takes place on Earth."

    3. American Hustle. "This portrait of the '70s revels in the decade’s gaudiness -- its disco dancing and casino dreams, its ugly coiffures and facial hair -- and in the eternal abrasion of sexy women and covetous men."

    4. Her. "Spike Jonze... creates a splendid anachronism: a modern rom-com that is laugh-and-cry and warm all over, totally sweet and utterly serious."

    5. The Grandmaster. "A fittingly elegiac climax for a world-class filmmaker who's always in the mood for lost love."

    6. Furious 6. "This adrenaline-stoking series is addictive, for its chases, crashes, crushes -- and for its poetic limning of the closest camaraderie many men can ever know: with their cars."

    7. Frozen. "The first animated feature in the Walt Disney studio's glorious history to offer two princess heroines, Frozen transforms Hans Christian Andersen's 'The Snow Queen' into a fable of modern, timeless sisterhood."

    8. The Act of Killing. "Making the movies, which vault from film noir to bizarre musical, eventually gets under Anwar's skin and into his dreams.... For any viewer, the effect is no less haunting."

    9. 12 Years a Slave. "The movie has the eerie impact of a museum exhibit; it is a diorama of atrocity."

    10. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. "Each complex encounter, especially a flume-ride escape of the dwarves, boasts a teeming ingenuity of action and character."

    Well, there's at least one NYFCC Hustle pusher.

    So true about AH, Jonathan, lol. Plus the movie is fun, though I am not sure how much broad or representative is of that era, as Corliss seems to make it.

    Interesting, the Great Beauty, in fact worked for me in parts where it was indeed cynical. Because the good thing/parts about the is that how it presents the cynical/bitter parts with such beauty, grandeur and elaboratness.

    Glad to see Grandmaster. I liked that movie a lot and I was not hoping to see it any end of year lists.

    And I don't even like Corliss much as a critic.

    Act of Killing is polling way to low in general so far (only top of one list, right?) For me it is one of the definite 10/10 this year.

    Wich shows that many AH supporters were actually Gravity supporters that couldn't convince the genuine AH supporters to vote for Gravity, while they didn't mind to vote for AH!

    I believe Fast Five was in his Top 10 of 2011. He has quite the thing for the franchise.

    Corliss, also have a lot of time 'commercial' and mainstream picks if you his earlier lists and picks (I remember some of his Bollywood selection for TIME at the turn of the century, I think.) Also, just thought that I should clarify that when I said 'not like' I meant that I find him a bit bland not active dislike.
