25 Best Films of 2015

We're still a few weeks away from Star Wars opening, which means most of us can't make our Top 10 list until we see that movie. But in the meantime, some critics have no desire to worry about Star Wars and are putting out their Best of the Year lists right now anyway. One of the annual must-see lists is actually a video countdown made by my colleague David Ehrlich (follow him @davidehrlich). He counts down his 25 best films of the year, including one excellent short (World of Tomorrow). It's a beautiful video that, along with trailer retrospectives, is a stellar reminder of why we loves movies - to discover the few that stick with you.

Video embedded directly from Vimeo. Description: "A video countdown of the best films of 2015." Created by Rolling Stone Staff Writer David Ehrlich. The list of films is referenced directly in the video. The music used throughout includes: Carter Burwell's score for Carol, the title theme from Tokyo Tribe, Kanye's track "Runaway" from The Night Before, Rihanna's track "Diamonds" used in Girlhood, Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue", "Roked" by from the Junun album, and "Happy Together" by The Turtles. Some of my favorite films from this include: the documentary Listen to Me Marlon, Tokyo Tribe, Mad Max: Fury Road, plus Eden.

  • This is cool. But, why are a lot of these taken from 2014 releases?
    • I just noticed a lot of them are international release dates.
