2013 #13: RUSH

When Ron Howard goes R-rated, typically, the results are first rate, and that's what you get with his exciting Formula One race car drama Rush. Chris Hemsworth is all sexy swagger but it's Daniel Bruhl who steals the film with a searing performance of a man driven to success at all costs. Anthony Dod Mantle's phenomenal, gritty cinematography and a totally immersive sound design ratchet up the true-story tension and life-or-death stakes. You don't need to be a racing fan to be knocked flat by this turbo-charged motion picture.
