With awards season almost upon us, MoMA's curators have done their customary review of this year's cinematic crop and pulled those films they believe fall in the cream category. Consisting of documentaries, mainstream movies, foreign-language films and art-house, the Contenders offers an exciting journey for the cinema curious. Among this year's picks you'll find Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present, David O. Russell's Silver Linings Playbook, Michael Haneke's Amour, runaway hit Moonrise Kingdom, and Judd Apatow's follow-up to Knocked Up, This is Forty. Discussions follow some screenings. Check MoMA's site for a full download.
