We’re now halfway through 2016, so join me, if you will, in a look back over my ten favourite films released in the UK between 1stJanuary and 31st June.
I can’t help but be slightly disappointed with this cinematic year. Yes, I’ve watched loads of great films but, seeing as though I’ve seen more films at this stage than ever before, I’m somewhat surprised that there haven’t been more to truly take my breath away.
Then again a year that gifts the world with a film as brilliant as my #1 is worth savouring…
10. Son of Saul (Full Review)
At ten we have a film that I imagine will feature on a good many lists such as this. László Nemes’ Son of Saul is an overwhelming Holocaust drama. I’ve still only seen it the once – at Cannes last year – and it may have ended up higher had I managed to squeeze in a rewatch.
