The 25 Best Films of 2016

"City of stars, there's so much that I can't see…" It's here! One of the annual must-see best of the year 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 in a video edited together with footage and music from each of the films. This is such an entertaining way to count down the best cinema of 2016, and it always makes me want to watch each one of these (even the ones I've seen before). There's so many great films on Ehrlich's list this year - from Jackie to La La Land to The Fits to Moonlight, and yes, even Swiss Army Man is superb. Enjoy.

Video embedded directly from Vimeo. Description: "A video countdown of the best films of 2016." Created by film critic/writer David Ehrlich (follow him on Twitter @davidehrlich). His pick of the best films is referenced directly in the video. The music used throughout includes: "City of Stars" from La La Land, "I'm So Humble" from Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, "Wild Is the Wind" by Cat Power, and music from The Handmaiden, High-Rise and Swiss Army Man. You can find more info and links to the previous years in the Vimeo page. I highly recommend watching any of these films in here you haven't seen yet. Thoughts?

really not that great of a year, 2016, in my opinion

Wildly creative and there's a ton of movies on this list I wasn't even AWARE of. Glad Kubo and the Two Strings was in there. If it doesn't win best animated feature, I. WILL. BE. PISSED!

Yep. Lobster was a favorite of mine. Kubo isn't enough Disneyish alas. They prefer to give Oscars to the likes of Frozen.

If Zootopia or Finding Dory wins, I'm gonna scream "IT'S RIGGED!" for the 12th year in a row.

Why Assassin's creed is featured in this video?

And Rogue One! It wasn't on the list!
