10. Toni Erdmann
Toni Erdmann is a film where you can learn a lot about yourself. A film that’s delightfully bizarre, yet delightfully real.
It’s a film that teaches you about putting life in perspective. To find joy, or humor in the everyday. How to balance the lighter moments in life, with the dark. And the absurdity of it all.
9. OJ Simpson: Made in America
Incredibly thorough, both in it’s breadth of knowledge and sharp historical perspective. A must-see documentary.
8. Manchester by the Sea
A truly complete film. No gimmicks, just reality. A film that allows Casey Affleck to run the entire gamut as an actor, to show completeness. And he does a fine job doing so.
Both joyous and heartbreaking, with some huge performances from a talented cast. Sometimes a film can be a reflection of life, mirroring back at us.
6. The Witch
Haunting, brooding, and in complete control. Kubrickian is one of the greatest compliments you can bestow upon a film.
Anya Taylor-Joy is a star in the making, possessing innocence, poise and depth far beyond her years.
