Check Out John Waters’ Favorite Films of 2013

John Waters, reigning king of smutty brilliance has just released his picks for 2013’s best films—and of course, it’s right on point. Throughout the next month or so, we’re sure to see a slew of top ten lists from cinema’s most prominent forces but unlike Quentin Tarantino’s favorite films of the year, The Lone Ranger is thankfully kept aside for truly some of the greatest fiction and documentary features we’ve seen in the last eleven months—from Blue Jasmine to After Tiller.

Back in the summer, we ranked our top favorite films of 2013 six months into the year. Upstream Color, Frances Ha, Spring Breakers, and Before Midnight fell highest on our list, with an updated version a few weeks ago, adding Stories We Tell, Blue Jasmine, and a few notable others. Our next iteration will most definitely include Steve McQueen’s brilliant 12 Years a Slave, Sorrentino’s The Great Beauty and Oppenheimer’s The Act of Killing. But for now, check out Waters’ Top Ten via MCN, which includes proudly boasts Harmony Korine’s psychotropic teen nightmare Spring Breakers as number one.

1. Spring Breakers
2. Camile Claudel 1915
3. Abuse Of Weakness
4. Hors Satan
5. After Tiller
6. Hannah Arendt
7. Beyond The Hills
8. Blue Jasmine
9. Blackfish
10. I’m So Excited
