Letterboxd's 'Official' Top 50 of 2016

To be updated weekly on Sundays. It's ranked by avg l.b. user rating, extracted from here.

Excludes shorts and TV/music. Includes documentaries and festival films of 2015 that had their first national release in 2016 (i.e. The Witch, Green Room). Does not include films that had some national releases in 2015 but U.S. releases delayed for 2016 (i.e. The Lobster). To verify titles and their releases I'm only including films that have IMDb pages.
