IndieWire has published its mammoth poll featuring the best achievements in film this year. Over thirteen categories, all but one of which feature fifty citations, their choices for the finest work of the year are detailed. Tops of the lists are dominated by Oscar contenders, critical hits and some more off-beat choices that made me smile. Among other things that pleased me were notable love for Lav Diaz's two films, Norte, the End of History and From What Is Before (a similar thing happened on Film Comment's lists, you may remember), and the fact that half of the films in the Top 14 First Features are directed by women. On the other hand, there are some irritating attempts at being clever in the acting categories (documentary subjects and some gender-bending citations), but I can overlook those and say that IndieWire's choices this year are very strong indeed.
