My Favourite Films of 2016

I have a love/hate relationship with top film lists.

Of course, their contents are dependent on the films actually seen, contingent on mood and atmosphere when seen, influenced by how others reacted, and much more. Yet, they hold an irresistible fascination, and often provide a useful opportunity to spot films which I need to check out, or some that may be worth another viewing to give them a further chance.

So, for what it might be worth, here’s my list of my favourite films seen in 2016. It’s a snapshot of this moment in time and nothing more. Tomorrow, it will probably be different.

Here it goes….
