Film Comment has announced the results of its annual critics poll, and Joel and Ethan Coen's Inside Llewyn Davis led the pack, with 12 Years a Slave and Before Midnight running close behind. (American Hustle and The Wolf of Wall Street, which few critics had seen before the poll's deadline, finished in 19th and 37th place, respectively.) The list of best films without U.S. distribution was topped by Philippe Garrel's Jealousy, followed by Tsai Ming-Liang's Stray Dogs. Film Comment invites readers to send their own Top 20s to fcpoll@filmlinc.com by February 3.
