L-R: John Goodman, Alan Arkin, and Ben Affleck in "Argo"
As 2012 ends, the best films deserve acknowledgement, a tip of the hat. Here are the films I most admired in 2012, those that entertained as well as inspired, that offered insight as well as consummate cinematic experiences.
 Humor and action define ‘Jack Reacher’
An unnerving sniper killing five people kicks off the action in “Jack Reacher,” a heartbreaking reminder of the tragic Newtown massacre. Once this difficult-to-watch scene ends, a well-written detective procedural follows, except that title character Jack Reacher isn’t a detective,…

A filmic feast courtesy of 'The Hobbit'
As John Ronald Reuel Tolkien wrote the story, it begins: "In a hole in the ground, there lived a hobbit." That hobbit, with his hairy bare feet is one Bilbo Baggins, a gentle soul, not made of stern stuff, a…
‘Deadfall’ is dead on arrival
Relying on ludicrous coincidences in a predictable, badly written story, “Deadfall” offers sociopathic criminals fleeing across snowy Michigan for the U.S.-Canadian border. A sure sign of a lack of depth, about every fifteen minutes an expendable character gets shot or…
‘The Big Picture’ asks big questions
Director/co-writer Eric Lartigau’s film “The Big Picture” poses a knotted series of problems regarding identity, anonymity and fame. More a theoretical interrogation than a richly delivered story, the plot begins with self-satisfied Parisian lawyer Paul Exben slow to realize his…
