12. Upstream Color

You'll forever be trying to figure out the true meaning of the pig but this mysterious physiological thriller is amazing and visual. It's not for everyone but think Se7en meets Tree of Life

11. Scenic Route

Scenic Route is a one location Horror Mellow-Drama with a physiological twist that keeps on moving second to second. Two man sitting in the desert and it's never boring, EVER!

10. American Milkshake

Originally when I saw this film back at Sundance it was titled just Milkshake. The concept is a white boy during the era of the OJ trial desires to make the Varsity Basketball team and craves to be practically Black! If that doesn't sound interesting for a coming-of-age comedy then I don't know what does!

9. In Fear

In Fear is a horror film about a couple trying to arrive at their hotel room on vacation. The only problem is they are lost and seem to be continually going around in circles!

8. Emanuel and the Truth about Fishes

It's weird, bizarre and strangely funny. That's all I'm going to say.

7. We Are What We Are

A southern family of cannibals. It's a rediscovered telling of a Silence of the Lambs style story.

6. Fool's Day (Short Film)

I don't know if it's out there anywhere for anyone to watch but Fool's Day is the best short film I've ever seen. A Comedy/Horror with kids, it's all you in the world.

5. The Kings of Summer

Originally titled Toy's House, the new title does the film a lot more justice. It's Stand by Me meets Goonies. The best coming-of-age story in a long long time in my eyes.

4. The Spectacular Now

A romance film that I am sure will go down as one of the best coming-of-age high school films in history and one of the most realistic depictions of first time sex I've ever seen, EVER!

Pure Ryan Gosling awesomeness and a strong story to back it all up!

2. The Hunt

My only foreign selection on this list. The Hunt is such an amazing international story of how we as a society act. Picture Perfect in every way possible.

1. Fruitvale Station

Originally titled just Fruitvale it is a true story of the last twenty-four hours of a young mans life. I saw this film twice and every time it screened at Sundance 2013 the director got a standing ovation. There was not a dry eye in the theater including my own. Fruitvale Station will be a best picture nominee so it won't be a film you soon forget and it won't be a film you haven't heard of for very long!
