Best DVDs of 2013

This list of videos viewed in 2013 is in subjective order (and very approximate subjective order, at that). It runs from quite extraordinary, at the top, to quite watchable, at the bottom. A number of films didn’t make the list. Needless to say, before investing the time in borrowing and viewing any of these DVDs, you would do well to review them on Rotten Tomatoes. Most large public libraries would have virtually all of these titles.
