My Top 20 in 2015 Rep

The 20 movies new-to-me I most enjoyed this year (all but one seen in rep, per my usual standard/obtuse/expensive practice), in alphabetical order — the movies that most made me glad I was there at that particular moment, rather than doing something else with my time.

Renewed appreciation: The Company, Gremlins, My Sex Life, Lawrence of Arabia, Mr. Nice Guy, Predator, Twitch of the Death Nerve

Most embarrassing omissions also filled: The Blood of Jesus, Carnival of Souls, Cat People, Daughters of the Dust, Deliverance, Ganja & Hess, I Walked with a Zombie, Khrustalyov, My Car!, Manhunter, The Pirate, Symbiopsychotaxiplasm: Take One, The Unbelievable Truth, Wanda, Wife! Be Like a Rose!
