    I wasn't able to catch HOLY MOTORS, hence no Lavant on my list.

    Props for mentioning Henshall. Really an incredible turn and one that deserves to get him heavyweight roles. That said Denis Lavant and McConaughey (for Killer Joe) deserve to be on standouts.

    Look around you --at what's unfolding, being rolled out,
    on every front.

    CON--sider the FACT that fanchise slum Hollywood, in 2012
    alone ----BALKED any treatment of this year's- - -

    200th Anniversary of the Defeat of Napoleonic Globalism at Moscow
    100th Anniversary of the Jeckyl Island banking and Globalism coup
    40th Anniversary of the Globalist handover of the American economy
    to RED China (ie Nixon---MAO)
    and 60th Anniversary of the RED China, Globalism and EUGENICS
    'unfriendly' ---------KOREAN WAR.

    The BEST performances were NEVER seen ---because the BEST movies
    of 2012 themselves were NEVER made.

    Are you seeing the BIG picture? ---YET?
