Indiewire 2012 Year-End Critics Poll

With 128 votes among 204 critics listed in Indiewire's Criticwire network, Leos Carax's "Holy Motors" topped Indiewire's seventh annual poll for Best Film. "Holy Motors" star Denis Lavant garnered the most votes for Best Performance. Jafar Panahi's "This Is Not a Film" won Best Documentary. For each ballot in which critics were asked to create lists -- Best Film, Best Performance, Best Supporting Performance and Best Undistributed Film -- films were ranked using a simple point system, the results of which are visible in the numerical breakdown to the right of each film title. In the other categories, critics submitted single votes, with each vote counting as one point.
