Interlude: TwitCrix Poll

Update: A few more people posted lists. I've updated it to reflect those.

Yesterday on Twitter, a number of the film critics I follow/follow me got around to posting their favorite films of 2012 so far. Curious to see what was the favorite, I aggregated the 25 30 lists I found. I ranked them the usual way (#1 picks got 5 points, #2 got 4 points, and so on—if the lists were unranked I each pick one point). This of course isn't the end all list, but for those wondering what to fill your Netflix queues with for the rest of the year, all these films are great, or at least worth checking out. 

1. Moonrise Kingdom (Wes Anderson, USA) - 73 points/23 mentions
2. Once Upon A Time in Anatolia (Nuri Bilge Ceylan, Turkey) - 29 points/7 mentions
3. The Deep Blue Sea (Terrence Davies, UK) - 26 points/11 mentions
4. Haywire (Steven Soderbergh, USA) - 26 points/10 mentions
5. The Kid With A Bike (Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne, Belgium) - 24 points/8 mentions
6. The Turin Horse (Bela Tarr, Hungary) - 20 points/8 mentions
7. Damsels in Distress (Whit Stillman, USA) - 16 points/5 mentions
8. This Is Not A Film (Jafar Panahi, Iran) - 14 points/5 mentions
9. Cabin in the Woods (Drew Goddard, USA) - 13 points/5 mentions
10. The Color Wheel (Alex Perry Ross, USA) - 13 points/3 mentions
11. Miss Bala (Gerardo Naranjo, Mexico) - 10 points/3 mentions
