    Another year, another bunch of films that are mostly impossible to see for most people even in December.

    If I made my list today, there is a three-way tie between Mountains May Depart, Right Now Wrong Then, and Cemetery of Splendour. Their sleepiness and glacial pace are similar to what their respective directors have done in the past, but they stand in stark contrast to so much of the open anger and polemical nature of so much cinema this year. It is unfair to tie films to current events outside of their control, but their worldliness was a welcome change to the crisis in America and in Western Europe.

    Curious as to why Cemetery of Splendor is on the list. It came out a year and a half ago.

    It came out in the United States in 2016. Most people use the release date of the country they live in since no one outside of film festivals could have seen the film last year.

    Oh yeah, I know that. I didn't even know it had a release date in this country haha.

    every tv show list is lacking steven universe, which is unsurprising, and most are lacking crazy ex girlfriend
    luckily the slant list had CEG very high

    Few things this year hit me as much as Horace and Pete, and I didn't even finish it yet. Atlanta was really great as well, ran through You're the Worst and enjoyed it, though this most recent season wasn't as strong as S2.

    Slant should be on Friday. Film Comment's top 20 should be sooner than later. Reverse Shot sometimes waits until January.

    Of the shows that were new in 2016, Horace and Pete, Atlanta, Baskets, High Maintenance and Insecure are probably my top 5.

    The films I have seen on there are deserving, and seeing Toni Erdmann at the top makes the wait even harder.

    Fair enough, I was just thinking it's also often heartbreaking,but I guess there's no dramedy category

    I've been meaning to try The American's out for years, no idea why I haven't when it's almost always near the top of lists like these but I also never really hear people talk about it.

    I don't blame her at all re: her tweet. I've already been looking at my above list of top 10 TV shows of the year and thinking about tweaking things.

    EDIT: "THERE'S TOO MANY SHOWS!"
