Encore Awards (2012 in Review): Memorable Scenes, Top 10
As I mentioned the write-up on the runners up, choosing my memorable scenes finalists is more about choosing scenes I’ve personally responded to that examining 2012 cinema to find the “best” scenes – an impossible task, really. These are the scenes which I’ve pondered on long after I saw the films, the cinematic moments I’m most liable to recall from the year – some moving, some shocking, some uncomfortable and all of them impressive.
#10: Anna Karenina / “I don’t think my nerves can stand another Alexei.”
#9: Holy Motors / Monsieur Merde
#8: Killer Joe / Chicken Leg
#7: The Hobbit / Riddle Game
#: 6: Moonrise Kingdom / “What kind of bird are you?”
