Edgar wright hand

World’s End/Shaun of the Dead director Edgar Wright has in past years posted his favorite movies of the year online. Wright, being a real film geek, always has some great cinematic recommendations. This year Digital Spy cornered Wright at a late November junket to get his top 10 list on video. Of course, recording the list early means Edgar had yet to see many of the December Awards-bait films. But after the jump you can watch Edgar read off his early list of favorite 2013 movies. It will be interesting to see which films get added and get pushed off the list when Wright updates his list on his blog in January.

Updated: Wright has offered a revision to the list, factoring in that he’s now been able to see some of the stuff that wasn’t yet available when he was pressured to make a list in November.

In mid November I was pushed to do a Top 10 films of the year, which was tricky because I still had so many movies left to see. It’s the 1st of January here in Australia (where I currently am) and I still have a huge amount of movies that I intend to see; including ‘Blue Is The Warmest Colour’, ‘Dallas Buyers Club’, ‘The Great Beauty’, ‘The Act Of Killing’ and many, many more. The truth is that more than 400 films were released last year and so I, like you, will still be watching 2013 movies in 2023. That said, here’s my expanded Top 20 movies of the year (can’t call all of them films as some were shot on digital). I thoroughly enjoyed, was moved or completely dazzled by …
