My Top 10 Films of 2015

Updated: May 5, 2023

2015 seemed to be an odd year for films. I saw about 35 films at the cinema and this list (not in any particular order) are 10 that have stayed with me or are little gems that I have been championing, but few of them would make it into my top 100 films.

If you think I have missed any major films, it may have been that I haven't seen them yet. I have added at the end a few films that have been appearing on many lists of the best of the year and are on my to catch up with list.
