The Best (and Worst) of 2016 Film and TV

First of all, I’m late. Everyone else did these 2016 film and tv lists in January. It’s February 2nd. So in the interest of not repeating three thousand other lists (and also in being, well, interesting), I’m going to attempt to focus on the 2016 film and tv that you might not be seeing.

Yes, you should all see MoonlightHidden Figures, The People vs. O.J. Simpson – basically everything but La La Land (disclaimer: I haven’t even seen it, I just know I’ll hate it). But let’s not forget these lesser gabbed about gems that also made their mark on 2016.

And when it comes to my worst of 2016 film and tv, feel free to take me to town. There’s bound to be some disagreement – is Hardcore Henry the best thing that’s happened to cinema since the long take in Touch of Evil? (it’s not) – but also, I hope, some mutual understanding.

And as always, I appreciate a reason to rethink my initial impressions. So if you’ve got good crit on any of my worst picks (or the best ones), send it over. You just might change my mind.

Now that we’ve been doing my version of film school for a bit, I think it’s best we apprehend the right materials, don’t you?

There are Skillshare courses. We talked shot analysis. Today, let’s read a few books.

Whether you read on a kindle (I think you’re weird) or the slowly browning paper it was meant to be printed on, these are the Top 10 Books on Film I recommend for those looking to sink their teeth deeper into the world of movies.

Helpful Amazon links included – even for those of you who’d commit the ultimate sacrilege and download them to your iPad (David Lynch is judging you).
