Did you know that the Kansas City Film Critics Circle is the second oldest critics group in the country? Yep, they've been voting for their favorites since 1966, which is when they gave Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? their highest accolade. Members of the KCFCC include Loey Lockerby, Russ Simmons and my good pal Dan Lybarger ... but even if you're not familiar with their work, it sure looks like the whole crew has some pretty excellent taste in movies.

So here's what the KCFCC threw some love towards as part of their 42nd(!) annual awards presentation...
