Here are all the great films you missed in 2016

best movies of 2016

If you’re a film buff then you already know that IndieWire‘s David Ehrlich is basically the DJ Earworm of the movie mashup world. His year-end ratings videos have become extremely popular in the short time since he began doing them regularly five years ago, and now the 2016 version is here. It’s a great way to catch a glimpse of all of the great cinema you’ve missed out on over the past year, so clear your schedule for the next fifteen minutes and dive in.

DON’T MISS: Forget the NES Classic, this $49 console can play all the retro games you want

It’s an extremely diverse list, and there’s something here for lovers of virtually every film genre. Of course, it never hurts to expand your horizons a bit and embrace something you’re unsure of, and Ehrlich has a pretty solid track record of picking real gems, so it wouldn’t be a terrible idea to make time for each of the flicks on the list.

Here they are, in order, in case any flew by too fast for you to grab the name:

  1. Moonlight
  2. Sunset Song
  3. Jackie
  4. OJ Made In America
  5. A Bigger Splash
