And Our Number 1 Film of 2012 Is...

Our choice for Film of the Year, is Kathryn Bigelow's "Zero Dark Thirty" - and as we’re we think that’s really saying something. The film held off "Lincoln" and "Silver Linings Playbook," joining "Drive," "Inception," "Fantastic Mr. Fox," "The Dark Knight" and "No Country for Old Men" as past recipients of Film of the Year.

Not that we’re alone in loving this movie: as of press time, 34 out of 35 critics agree . Within our own critical brethren, the dynamically talented Stephanie Zacharek awarded the film a spectacular"A" grade.

Here’s the complete top 100 as voted upon by the staff, writers, and contributor core.
