Okay, everybody knows Ed Koch is a former New York mayor and a major player in Jewish politics. In 2008 he campaigned aggressively for Democratic nominee Barack Obama; these days he's giving President Obama heartburn by leading the charge against his current Middle East policies.

But Ed Koch is also a film buff and a keen-eyed critic, as recipients of his movie review emails know.

Mr. Koch was kind enough to share his top movie picks of the past 12 months with the Jewish Week:

1. The Ghost Writer (Director: Roman Polanski) 

2. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Director: Niels Arden Oplev) 

3. My Name is Khan (Director: Karan Johar) 

4. Crazy Heart ( Director: Scott Cooper) 

5. Up in the Air (Director: Jason Reitman)
