Kansas City Film Critics Obeyed "The Master" in 2012

by Leroy Douresseaux

I complete today's 2012 film awards season catch-up with the Kansas City Film Critics Circle. The group named The Master as the "Best Film of 2012," and they matched Ang Lee's best director Oscar for Life of Pi by also honoring him.

Founded in 1967, The Kansas City Film Critics Circle (KCFCC) says that it is the "second oldest professional film critics" association in the United States" (behind the New York Film Critics Circle). The organization is composed of media film critics in the Kansas City metropolitan area. The KCFCC’s awards are named for the group’s founder, James Loutzenhiser, who died in November 2001.
