Films with iconic and haunting images rule the year
A visceral art film shockingly made within the Hollywood studio system, "Gravity" is simply a masterpiece. Alfonso Cuaron's space drama follows our heroine's journey back to Earth, but, more impressively, eloquently conveys her will and desire to live again. Cuaron's stunning direction and technical breakthroughs are an absolute marvel. However, it's Sandra Bullock's career best performance, Emmanuel Lubizecki's gorgeous cinematography and Steven Price's soaring score that makes "Gravity" an emotional roller coaster for the ages. And like a number of the films in this year's top 10, it will haunt you days after you've seen it. Simply, cinema at its best.
