Filmography 2015

I used to be better about these end of the year "best of" lists. Anyway, I figured I'd give you one this year. My favorite American and British films of 2015, unranked (id est, in no particular order):

01. Ex Machina (Dir. Alex Garland)
02. The Hateful Eight (Dir. Quentin Tarantino)
03. Mr. Holmes (Dir. Bill Condon)
04. The Danish Girl (Dir. Tom Hooper)
05. Trumbo (Dir. Jay Roach)
06. Crimson Peak (Dir. Guillermo del Toro)
07. The Revenant (Dir. Alejandro G. Iñárritu)
08. It Follows (Dir. David Robert Mitchell)
09. Clouds of Sils Maria (Dir. Olivier Assayas)
10. The End of the Tour (Dir. James Ponsoldt)
11. Love and Mercy (Dir. Bill Pohlad)
12. Predestination (Dir. Michael and Peter Spierig)
13. Maps to the Stars (Dir. David Cronenberg)
14. Joy (Dir. David O. Russell)
15. The Martian (Dir. Ridley Scott)
16. Mad Max: Fury Road (Dir. George Miller)*
17. Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Dir. J. J. Abrams)
18. Bone Tomahawk (Dir. S. Craig Zahler)

* Never before have I so hated a film the first time I saw and then completely reversed my opinion on the second viewing.

These are eighteen films I say you need to see, people. Note, to appear on this list, a film had to have a 2015 U.S. release date.

That's a very good list. There's still a couple there I need to see before I make my own list to-morrow. Did you see Bone Tomahawk? I feel like I saw you talk about it, maybe it was someone else.

No problem. It's been a fantastic year for Kurt Russell's fantastic moustache.
