What 2013 Films Would Win If Psychologists Gave Out Academy Awards?
The decision to add selected psychologically relevant films to PsycCRITIQUES (a practice introduced by E. G. Boring, the first editor of Contemporary Psychology) has been widely applauded, and many readers report they read the film reviews before turning to the more pedestrian reviews of books.
Some of the 2013 films that have been (or will be) reviewed in PsycCRITIQUES include The Great Gatsby, 42, Captain Phillips, Dallas Buyers Club, American Hustle, 12 Years a Slave, Gravity, Her, The Wolf of Wall Street, The Butler, and Before Midnight.
