If you listen to the podcast, or have watched a movie with me – you are well aware that I cry while watching movies. The tears flow for varying reasons: maybe I’m vibing with the filmmaker and feel like he/she/them is speaking to me, maybe I can relate to what is happening on-screen, perhaps I feel for the characters and they’re going through a tough time. There are numerous reasons why I let my emotions go – the main reason is that it’s healthy to express my emotions. Two years ago I wept during the credits for M. Night Shyamalan’s “The Visit” because I felt so much joy from watching a terrific film from a filmmaker I thought was finished. For several years I felt betrayed by the decline in M. Night’s films, but The Visit gave me great hope that he will emerge as a good filmmaker – I’m happy to report his latest film Split is a fine return to form.
While forming my list of Top 10 films of 2016, I realized how many of the films moved me. This is no indicator of my Top 10 list which we’ll be listing on our podcast in the coming days. Each write-up may wander into spoiler territory, so avert your eyes if you have not seen these films: Jackie, Green Room, Too Late, Loving, Moonlight, Kubo and the Two Strings, Swiss Army Man, Arrival, The Red Turtle, and Cameraperson.
