Best of 2012 so far

Yes, it's that time again. The year is half over and I need to do a little housekeeping. The year has been good so far, be little ol' me has some catch up to do in the next six months. Here are the top ten films I've seen that have received a US release in the first half of 2012, in cop-out alphabetical order, subject to change.
The Day He Arrives

4:44 Last Day on Earth dir Abel Ferrara 
Attenberg dir Athina Rachel Tsangari
The Day He Arrives dir Hong Sang-soo 
Elena dir Andrei Zvyagintsev
I Wish dir Hirokazu Koreeda 
Once Upon a Time in Anatolia dir Nuri Bilge Ceylan
Patience (After Sebald) dir Grant Gee
Post Mortem dir Pablo Larrain
This Is Not a Film dir Jafar Panahi and Mojtaba Mirtahmasb

(You could assume that I haven't seen Beasts of the Southern Wild and Moonrise Kingdom, but you would be wrong.)
