The top 10 documentaries of 2012

The top 10 documentaries of 2012. By Simon Miraudo.

With 2012 coming to a close, it’s time to reflect on the year’s cinematic treats, and then crowbar each work of art into a numerical position on a comparative chart. Comedies versus dramas! Thrills versus chills! The great versus the very good! This is the business we list-makers have chosen. Come, shoulder the burden.

The truth will set you free, or, at least, maybe score you a slot in our list of the 10 best documentaries of 2012. It’s been a great year for the form, evidenced by the notable exclusions (The Imposter, First Position) as much as the great flicks that made the grade. Documentaries also impressed at the box office, with three features – 2016: Obama’s America, Chimpanzee, and Katy Perry: Part of Me – now among the highest grossing of all time (not that they’re the best examples of the genre, but whatever). Some of these are readily available, while others have been criss-crossing the country on the festival circuit, with a release slated for 2013. Take note now: between them, they offered just as much humour, pathos, heartbreak, jubilance, and surprise as the best narrative pictures.
