Top ten (13?) in 2016

Guess it's about time, huh? It was a good year for film, though bad for other things. I didn't nearly see all the films I would've liked to in 2016, but these are the best of the ones I saw. (To clarify, these are only films released this year. No particular order, except Moonlight is number one.)
Bonus: my favorite short films of the year, Lazarus and Blackstar (I know Blackstar didn't technically come out this year,  but I feel like it and Lazarus are two sides of the same coin.)


(Also also, Manchester was a late addition but it really hit me and I didn't want to remove any of the others on the list?)
