TheDailyBeast: Best Movies of 2012

9 of 12

3. ‘Silver Linings Playbook’

No filmmaker handles familial dysfunction better than David O. Russell ("The Fighter") and here, he gets career-best performances out of Bradley Cooper as a bipolar goon acclimating to life outside of a mental hospital and Jennifer Lawrence as the no-nonsense firecracker who gives him the kick in the ass he needs. Robert De Niro also turns in his best effort in years as Cooper’s loving, Philadelphia Eagles-obsessed father. The film as a whole is a fascinating exploration of the relationships between a sports team and a city, a father and son, and two lost souls searching for meaning in this crazy, mixed-up world.
