Spring Breakers

There are top ten lists, and then there are top ten lists by John Waters. Each year, everyone's favorite cult filmmaker delivers his list to Artforum, and it's usually a surprising blend of arthouse oriented pictures and left field surprises.

And 2013 is no different with Waters naming fellow provocateur Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers" as the best of the past twelve months. As for the rest of the list, it's driven by auteurs with Bruno Dumont (x2), Catherine Breillat, Cristian Mungiu, Woody Allen and Pedro Almodovar dominating. But sneaking in there are hot button docs "Blackfish," about the questionable practices of SeaWorld, and "After Tiller" focusing on doctors that perform late stage abortions. 

Take a look at the full list below and let us know what you think of John Waters' choices. [Indiewire]
