Top Ten Movies: 2015

45 Years

A sporadic year overall. But while many critics bemoan the death of cinema, the commercial success of films like Star Wars: The Force Awakens reassure us that the experience of watching a movie in a theater and with an audience is still, you know, an actual thing. In the meantime, here’s my personal top ten list of the year. Unfortunately, I still have a lot of catching up to do before I expand on it any further. Guess I’ve got some homework to do. Happy New Year everyone!

1. 45 Years (Andrew Haigh)
2. Son of Saul (Lázló Nemes)
3. Mustang (Deniz Gamze Ergüven)
4. Mad Max: Fury Road (George Miller)
5. Clouds of Sils Maria (Olivier Assayas)
6. Tangerine (Sean S. Baker)
7. Jauja (Lisandro Alonso)
8. Experimenter (Michael Almereyda)
9. Phoenix (Christian Petzold) and The Duke of Burgundy (Peter Strickland)
10. Spotlight (Tom McCarthy)
