2016 Film Rankings

“Every night I cut out my heart. But in the morning it was full again.” – The English Patient

 

In February of 1996, The English Patient, a story of a fateful love affair told in flashbacks, won Best Picture.

20 years later, in February of 2016, Moonlight, a chronicle of the childhood, adolescence and adulthood of a young, gay black man, growing up in Miami, won Best Picture.

2016 has been a year filled with groundbreaking films, ceiling shattering actors, producers & directors and it’s a year of film not to be forgotten. This is my list of all the movies I saw in theaters in 2016, from favorite to least favorite.
