Ain't-Them-Bodies-Saints-2

I was invited to submit a list of my favourite releases of 2013 for The Skinny’s annual contributors’ poll, going by UK theatrical release dates but not including festival showings. I also wrote blurbs for what ended up being the #1 and #9 films on our group top 10.

You can read my list, other individual lists and the consensus top 10 here.
For reference, our lists were submitted in mid-November to make the December print edition of the magazine.
