My favorite film critic’s top 10 of 2016

Steven Greydanus of Decent Films and The National Catholic Register has published his Top 10 films of 2016.

It’s definitely worth your attention. But of course it is — he’s my favorite film critic.

And now I’m frustrated that I haven’t finished and published my own list yet, because people are going to think that I’m imitating Greydanus. I’m not. I’m really not. He’ll tell you this, because we compared notes earlier — our top three titles of 2016 really are the same, just ordered differently.

Why is my list so late? Well, I’m trying to see as many of the highly rated 2016 films as possible. I missed quite a few due to that crazy pile-up of work and medical crises in November/December. But I’m finally feeling like I’ve seen enough to share a decent list, so stay tuned….
