The Top 20 Best Films of 2015

At the commencement of every new year I am planning to post a list of my 20 favorite movies from the previous twelve months. Also, this will include at least one film I found to be deserving of more credit, even if it is far from a masterpiece, than it originally received. Completing this annual write-up will be the five worst features from the aforementioned time period. Included below is my entry for 2015.

Please note: I still haven’t seen The Hateful Eight. Regardless, I am making every effort to do so. This is not only because of the positive word of mouth but, primarily, because Quentin Tarantino is one of the greatest, and purely cinematic, directors working today.

I also have heard great things about Trumbo, The Revenant, Spotlight and Michael Moore’s new documentary Where to Invade Next . Once I see these features this article may be altered accordingly.
