TORONTO -- Toronto film critics have named the folk music tale Inside Llewyn Davis the best film of 2013, and awarded star Oscar Isaac best actor.

The Coen brothers' movie triumphed over two runners-up: the futuristic romance Her and the searing saga 12 Years a Slave.

The Toronto Film Critics Association named Alfonso Cuaron best director for his space thriller Gravity, while best screenplay went to Spike Jonze's Her.

This latest best picture pick joins an already diverse slate of critics' favourites, an annual exercise that in some years can indicate front-runners for the upcoming awards season. This year, it remains anyone's guess.

The San Francisco Film Critics Circle, the New York Film Critics Online and the Boston Society of Film Critics all chose the slavery epic 12 Years a Slave as best picture.

But the New York Film Critics Circle favoured David O. Russell's Abscam fictionalization American Hustle and the National Board of Review picked Her.
