And the lists keep on coming... We're just a few weeks away from 2014 (crazy, right?) which means lots of lists are being made, and not just for Santa Claus. Critics, pundits, everyday folks and your next door neighbor are drafting their tally of the year's finest achievement in cinema, and this latest rundown comes from north of the border, with a little twist.
TIFF has unveiled Canada's Top Ten Films Of 2013 (despite the fact that a few of them haven't officially opened yet, but just played festivals). Sorted alphabetically, the intriguing roundup includes Denis Villeneuve's other movie with Jake Gyllenhaal, "Enemy," the Daniel Radcliffe/Zoe Kazan starring rom-com "The F Word" and Xavier Dolan's "Tom At The Farm." Other titles of note include Quebecois fave "Sarah Prefers To Run," the documentary "When Jews Were Funny" and more.
Check out the full list below (along with a trailer for all of them) along with a selection of shorts as well. And if you happen to be in Toronto, TIFF will be screening all the films from January 3 to 12, 2014 with Q&As with the filmmakers and more.
