This guide also includes Best-Of lists, Honorable Mentions, DVD reviews, and short essays about the year in movies.

From international thrillers ("Argo," "Zero Dark Thirty") to heartrending dramas ("The Master," "Amour"), gritty action flicks ("End of Watch"), eye-opening fantasies ("The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," "Looper," "Cloud Atlas"), and soul-stirring documentaries ("How to Survive a Plague," "Searching for Sugar Man"), "Eyes Wide Open: 2012" covers it all!
