Amy’s 2013 Movies Revisited
We’re already more than halfway through 2014, so it was time to revisit my favorite movies of last year, even though it looks like I’ll never get to see Zinda Bhaag nor The Tale of Princess Kaguya.
There wasn’t any strong contenders to push The Congress out of that first spot, even though I’d totally put Sunny or Gf*Bf ahead of it in a blink of an eye. There are tons of feelings to be had, though, especially from Asian entries Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Miracle in Cell No. 7 and Koreeda’s Like Father, Like Son.
Note: I stopped considering Bambi and The Garden of Words since both of them aren’t feature length.
