Here are my top ten films of 2016, the ones I responded to the most strongly, the ones I’d most want to watch again, and as is so often the case: the ones I really want to tell everyone about. I hope you’ll watch them too and feel something good.
Acknowledging that there is only so much time to watch only so many movies, here are a few films to consider from the past six months of 2016. It’s the annual tradition of the Same Page Midyear Movie Review.
What to Watch is the Same Page’s monthly film recommendations column where we help you decide which movies you should give your time to. For each week there’s a winner and a runner-up, with a brief write-up for each, to give you some idea of what each quality film is about and why you should maybe (or definitely) check it out.
