Another day, another top ten sixteen list, this time from the desk of New York Times film critic Manohla Dargis. And while you'll find the usual suspects like "Inside Llewyn Davis," "12 Years a Slave," "American Hustle" and "Her," the list is mostly notable for giving shine to perhaps some of the more undersung and left-field films that dropped in 2013.

Spring Breakers

Another day, another top ten sixteen list, this time from the desk of New York Times film critic Manohla Dargis. And while you'll find the usual suspects like "Inside Llewyn Davis," "12 Years a Slave," "American Hustle" and "Her," the list is mostly notable for giving shine to perhaps some of the more undersung and left-field films that dropped in 2013.

And so this writer is at least pleased to see some love for Ron Howard's slept-on "Rush," while Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers" continues to show more end-of-year love than anyone might have expected. Surprisingly, two highly anticipated but middlingly received movies get props here in the shape of Ridley Scott's "The Counselor" and Wong Kar-wai's "The Grandmaster." And Steven Soderbergh's lively "Behind the Candelabra" appears as well.

Full list below, and while Dargis didn't make a list of stuff she didn't like, she did mention that "Oz The Great And Powerful" was "one of the worst movies of 2013." And you can check out her colleague A.O. Scott's top ten right here.
