My Top 100 Favourite Films - 2016 Edition

Every year in April I put together a list of my favourite films. Not definitive, it is meant to reflect my feelings of the moment - current obsessions and recent fascinations. This year for the first time I did the countdown on Twitter, and had a hellava time with it.

As always feel free to send me recommendations. I think my blindspots are pretty apparent, and I'm always looking to see new, great cinema!
