As selected by Kasper R Guldberg ...

1. Side Effects
Soderbergh’s purportedly last cinematic blast is a chilling, seductive thriller in which Rooney Mara exploits her beauty and the wickedness of Big Pharma to get even with men, including an excellent Jude Law.
2. Frances Ha
3. The Great Gatsby
4. Blue Jasmine
5. Monsters University


As selected by Arun Sharma ...

1. Upstream Color
Shane Carruth’s long overdue follow-up to Primer (2004) is a narratively abstract, visually stunning film that manages to capture both the beauty and the horror of our existence.
2. The Great Beauty
3. Stoker
4. Her
5. Under the Skin


As selected by Mark Walker ...

1. Mud
It’s refreshing to see traditional storytelling take a contemporary setting and do the job as well as anything that came before it. Mud is a timeless American classic.
2. To the Wonder
3. The Master
4. Before Midnight
5. Samsara / Behind the Candelabra


As selected by Luke Richardson ...

1. The Master
Paul Thomas Anderson takes his place as the finest American filmmaker working today. With a score from Jonny Greenwood, stunning cinematography and a resplendent return to form from Mr Phoenix, it’s a certified masterpiece.  
2. Blue Jasmine
3. Rust and Bone
4. Harmony Lessons
5. The Selfish Giant


As selected by Liz Dellapenna ...

1. This is the End
A raunchy and surprisingly insightful film that satirises celebrities and the culture they inhabit. The film features the cast as fictional versions of themselves in an apocalypse scenario.
2. Place Beyond the Pines
3. A Late Quartet
4. The Way Back
5. American Hustle
