3. Midnight in Paris (dir. Woody Allen)
After watching every single feature film that Woody Allen has directed, I was lucky enough to watch this over in California with Marya (who had also seen all his films) and Raina. Although he’s made a few flawed films in his lifetime, there is no doubt that Midnight in Paris is one of his top films. The ensemble cast, featuring plenty of well-known and upcoming actors, is one of the best this year and the collection of historical figures is just wonderful. Any person who cares about the arts (especially those of the 1920s) will find themselves extremely pleased with this film, and even those who couldn’t care less might find some magic in Woody Allen’s latest achievement in filmmaking.
