The Best Films of 2016

Each year, I try to watch, at minimum 40 films, during the calendar year and rank them in the order from best to worst based on my opinion. I do this because:

  1. I love film
  2. So that readers of this site will know that my opinions are based on all available information and are not coming from a place of ignorance or lack of information.

So, without further adieu, here is my list of the top films of 2016.
