It's beginning to look a lot like... Awards season. December has arrived and it means trophies are going to start arriving by the truckload. This week alone we'll see the Gotham Awards, New York Film Critics Circle and the National Board Of Review all hand out their prizes, while overseas the celebration of 2013 of film has already begun. Last week, Cahiers Du Cinema dropped their best of the last twelve months, and now another cinephile mag is doing is the same.

It's beginning to look a lot like... Awards season. December has arrived and it means trophies are going to start arriving by the truckload. This week alone we'll see the Gotham Awards, New York Film Critics Circle and the National Board Of Review all hand out their prizes, while overseas the celebration of 2013 of film has already begun. Last week, Cahiers Du Cinema dropped their best of the last twelve months, and now another cinephile mag is doing is the same.

Sight & Sound has unveiled their ranking of what was notable in the year in movies, and where their pals at Cahiers placed "Stranger By The Lake" in the top spot, it bottomed out here. Instead, acclaimed documentary "The Act Of Killing" was named as the finest movie of 2013 with other big flicks this year like Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity" and "Blue Is The Warmest Color" making up the top three. 

Noah Baumbach's "Frances Ha" landed right in the middle, while fare like Shane Carruth's "Upstream Color," Jia Zhangke's "A Touch Of Sin" and more made their way onto the final ten. Check out the full list below and as always, sound off in the comments section. 

Sight & Sound Top 10 Of 2013
1. The Act Of Killing
2. Gravity
3. Blue Is The Warmest Color
4. The Greaty Beauty
5. Frances Ha
6. A Touch Of Sin
6. Upstream Color
8. The Selfish Giant
9. Norte, The End Of History
9. Stranger By The Lake
