Curators' Choice: The Best of 2012
Selected by Chief Curator David Schwartz and Assistant Film Curator Rachael Rakes
Master directors such as David Cronenberg, Terence Davies, Hong Sang-soo, Béla Tarr, and Jafar Panahi (working secretly while under house arrest) were all working at the top of their form in 2012, and there was also exciting work by new directors, such as the Brazilian critic-turned-filmmaker Kleber Mendonça Filho who made an astonishing debut. Here is a chance to see some of the past year’s best films on the big screen. With the theatrical window prior to DVD release becoming shorter and shorter, it becomes more important than ever that venues such as the Museum keep these great movies alive as theatrical experiences.
