It's been a helluva year for movies, so much so that the BMD crew is starting to sweat its year-end top 10 lists. Virtually every month delivered at least a couple films worth getting excited about, and now we're supposed to whittle all those titles down into a single list? Of just ten? And rank them? Daunting task, bro.
We'll start rolling out the BMD staff's top 10 lists soon enough. In the meantime, we'd like to recommend the following video countdown of the year's 25 best films, from IndieWire's David Ehrlich. We run this particular countdown every year, as they're always worth watching: the needle drops are always great, the editing is always razor-sharp, and Ehrlich's choices are usually spot on. And, hey, even if you don't agree with the choices he's made (and we mostly do agree!), there's no denying the dude puts together a very entertaining package.
Here it is. Enjoy, and stay tuned for the BMD staff's top 10 lists, which'll start dropping once we're all sure we've seen everything that needed to be seen this year (read: none of us have seen Aquaman yet).
