Here are a dozen films from last year's Venice Film Festival that you can watch from the privacy of your own home.

Venice International Film Festival 3

Yesterday, "Gravity" opened up to great fanfare at the Venice Film Festival. Unfortunately, unless you have a massive IMAX screen within walking distance of your kitchen or you happen to on extremely good terms with the people at Warner Bros., you're not going to be able to replicate that experience in the near future.

Armed with that knowledge, let's think back to a simpler time, a time when Twitter had none of those blue lines and "twerk" wasn't even a gleam in the Oxford Dictionary's eye. That's right: 2012! Remember that? A good year. 

Well, the last installment of the Venice Film Festival brought us some interesting titles, some of which have gradually made their way onto the Internet via legal streaming and downloading channels. We've collected some of those various films and locations so that you can catch up with those you may have missed. If by some chance, you've already seen all of these films or none of the ones below entice you, be sure to check out our streaming guides for last year's SXSW and Tribeca fests.

[For each title, we've included a link to where you can find the film online and a link to its film page where you can see grades and read reviews from the members of the Criticwire Network.]
