news//JOHN WATERS NAMES 'SPRING BREAKERS' THE YEAR'S BEST FILM

TOP TEN



Another prominent (for lack of a better term) Top Ten list has been released in the form of auteur director John Waters' annual list of his favorite films of the year. The director of the original Hairspray, and other off-the-wall bizarre flicks, undoubtably has an interesting taste in cinema, as seen in his list which includes Harmony Korine's notoriously "out there" Spring Breakers at the top. This is the second somewhat-prestigious list to include the edgy indie-drama starring Selena Gomez and james Franco in its list, after Cahiers du Cinema included it on their annual list. The film's Oscar chances are slim, but it's definitely proving to have hit a niche somewhere.

Here's a look at the entire top ten:

1. SPRING BREAKERS (Directed by Harmony Korine)
2. CAMILE CLAUDEL 1915 (Directed by Bruno Dumont)
3. ABUSE OF WEAKNESS (Directed by Catherine Breillat)
4. HORS SATAN (Directed by Bruno Dumont)
5. AFTER TILLER (Directed by Martha Shane, Lana Wilson)
6. HANNAH ARENDT (Directed by Margarethe von Trotta)
7. BEYOND THE HILLS (Directed by Cristian Mungiu)
8. BLUE JASMINE (Directed by Woody Allen)
9. BLACKFISH (Directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite)
10. I'M SO EXCITED (Directed by Pedro Almodovar)
