Longtime film critic Roger Ebert wrote a record 300 film reviews this year. And he calls 2012 "one of the best recent years in cinema," pretty high praise for such a well-established critic.
Ebert ranked the top 10 films of the past 12 months, a list that includes action-packed cop thrillers and thoughtful love stories.
His six through 10: A Simple Life; Oslo, August 31; Beasts of the Southern Wild; The Sessions and Flight.
