The Year in Film 2012

posted by Nell Minow

I look forward to this every year!  It is a brilliantly edited and scored little film of its own.  Look through the year in film and see how many you can identify.  The complete list is at the Filmographile tumblr.

Frank: The Real Story of the Singer With the Paper-Mache Mask
One of the handsomest men alive spends almost the entire movie wearing a huge round paper maché head in "Frank," a moving film inspired by the real-life story of the late Frank Sidebottom.  Michael Fassbender plays Frank, a sweet-natured but very quirky musician who wears his big head mask even in
