“Amour” is an almost unbearably sad movie, but it’s another superb and uncompromising work from director Michael Haneke. I’d say it’s one of the year’s best movies, as as “Les Miserables” (which I picked as my no. 1 movie of the year) and “The Impossible,” an amazing story about a family caught up in the Boxing Day tsunami that hit Thailand. I listed “The Impossible” as my third-best movie of the year, and I put “Zero Dark Thirty,” which opened Wednesday, at no. 5. I also very much liked David Chase’s “Not Fade Away,” another holiday release.
