Here Are Quentin Tarantino’s Top 10 Films of 2013


Studious list-maker Quentin Tarantino has compiled his top 10 films of 2013 (so far), and the results may surprise you. We didn’t expect to find Gore Verbinski’s reimagining of The Lone Ranger on anyone’s best-of list (the characters are utterly dated), but here we are. Jill Soloway’s Afternoon Delight wins the number one spot (her feature debut) — about a bored stay-at-home mom who spices up her life with a trip to the strip club. We can see the parallel between Four Rooms‘ satirical humor and the “raucous comedy” of Soloway’s work. Spot any other surprises?

1. Afternoon Delight (Jill Soloway)
2. Before Midnight (Richard Linklater)
3. Blue Jasmine (Woody Allen)
4. The Conjuring (James Wan)
5. Drinking Buddies (Joe Swanberg)
6. Frances Ha (Noah Baumbach)
