Cahiers du Cinéma's "Top Ten 2012"

The French film journal has unveiled their choices for the best films of the year.

Cahiers du Cinéma's December issue has arrived, and with it the journal's annual conversation-starting top ten list, featuring not one but two nods to Abel Ferrara and topped with this year's notorious limousine-themed double bill.

The list:

1. Holy Motors, Dir. Leos Carax
2. Cosmopolis, Dir. David Cronenberg
3. Twixt, Dir. Francis Ford Coppola
4. 4:44 Last Day on Earth, Dir. Abel Ferrara
4. In Another Country, Dir. Hong Sang-Soo
4. Take Shelter, Dir. Jeff Nichols
7. Go Go Tales, Dir. Abel Ferrara
8. Tabu, Dir. Miguel Gomes
9. Faust, Dir. Alexander Sokurov
