THE 100 BEST MOVIE SCENES OF 2013
Howard Hawks famously classified a good movie as any film that “has three great scenes, no bad ones.” Well, if we can extrapolate Hawks’ wisdom to the era of the needlessly distended listicle, perhaps it could be said that a good movie year has 100 great scenes, a few thousand bad ones, and an entire Adam Sandler movie comprised of the most unwatchable. By those standards, 2013 was most definitely a good movie year, and – given how little trouble we had populating this epic countdown – maybe even a great one. Individual scenes are the cinema’s flashbulb memory, and though some of the films represented on this list certainly transcend their isolated pleasures, these are the moments that ultimately defined the year in movies.
Reflecting on the films of 2013, these are the bits we’ll be referencing every time we begin a sentence with “Remember that part when…”.
