Spring Breakers

Let the honors begin. While the New York Film Critics Circle will select their winners a week from today, unofficially kicking off the handing out of awards, overseas the snootier and usually more adventurous folks at Cahiers du Cinéma have unveiled their top ten movies of 2013. And as usual, it's excitingly all over the place.

While much more well known fare like "Lincoln" (probably counting for 2013 thanks to overseas release dates), "Gravity" and "Blue Is The Warmest Color" made the list, it's the celebrated thriller and Cannes Un Certain Regard—Best Director and Queer Palme winner "Stranger By Lake"—that took the top spot. Meanwhile, Harmony Korine's debauchery and dubstep-fueled "Spring Breakers" broke into the list, continuing the faint hopes for anyone hoping James Franco's deranged performance as Alien will be a factor in the awards season. Festival circuit faves like Jia Zhang Ke's "A Touch Of Sin" and Phillippe Garrel's "La Jalousie" were also honored.

Rounding things out are smaller movies like Hong Sang-soo's "Nobody's Daughter Haewon," Yann Gonzalez's "You And The Night" (scored by M83, trailer here) and Justine Triet's "La bataille de Solférino." Anyway, full list below—and let us know what you think in the comments section. [Vodkaster]
