• Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy in Before Midnight

Although I’m still processing many films that were released in 2012, there seem to be just as many that I’m looking forward to in the coming year. Many seasoned filmmakers are back with new work, while more than a couple are churning up projects that are either direct sequels or at least bear a striking resemblance to previous efforts.

It’s impossible to anticipate an entire year’s worth of films, so consider this list incomplete. I welcome you to share any and all oversights, so that our moviegoing radars ensure nothing is overlooked. Here’s to a fruitful 2013 in film!
