This year's best-of lists could make a history class curriculum, with films about the 1979 seizure of the U.S. embassy in Tehran, the final months of Abraham Lincoln's presidency and the hunt for Osama bin Laden. All will factor into an Oscar race that won't be as clear cut as last year's coronation of "The Artist."
Four movies filmed in part or full in Pittsburgh opened in 2012 -- "The Dark Knight Rises," "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," "Won't Back Down" and "Jack Reacher" -- with a fifth, "Promised Land," due in theaters Jan. 4.
Read it all. I am interested in how many you have seen, and what you make of their list--KSH.
