    1. Taxi (Jafar Panahi) 
    2. World of Tomorrow (Don Hertzfeldt) 
    3. The Witch (Robert Eggers) 
    4. Tangerine (Sean Baker) 
    5. Take Me to the River (Matt Sobel) 
    6. Nasty Baby (Sebastian Silva) 
    7. The Wolfpack (Crystal Moselle) 
    8. 99 Homes (Ramin Bahrani) 
    9. The Hunting Ground (Kirby Dick) 
    10. The Nightmare (Rodney Ascher)

    I’ll wait to post the full list on July 1st but all I’m saying now is that it will be very hard to beat Me & Earl & the Dying Girl

    Well, as I have only seen 10 films that were released this year, probably best not to a make a top 10.

    I’ve seen roughly a dozen films or so, so this making a list really isn’t saying much at this point. Regardless:

    EDIT: Now, I’ve seen Inside Out.

    1) Mad Max: Fury Road
    2) Inside Out
    3) The Duke of Burgundy
    4) Ex Machina
    5) Paddington
    6) It Follows
    7) What We Do in the Shadows
    8) Clouds of Sils Maria
    9) Avengers: Age of Ultron
    10) Kingsman: The Secret Service

    Same with me. July 1st I’ll release my list. So far, I only have 8 that I would definitely include on the list, but there are some films in the next couple of weeks that have potential.

    I will also release my list at the start of July so I can see some of the June films first that I have a feeling could be strong contenders for my Top 10 of the year, period (‘Dope’, ‘Me, and Earl, and the Dying Girl’, ‘Inside Out’, ‘Love and Mercy’).

    Ok, I’ve seen most of the films with a June or earlier release date that I thought might make my list, so here it is, in alphabetical not preferential order. If there’s really a demand for solid rankings, I’ll change it, but that would be really difficult for me. If I see anything else from before July, then I’ll add it later, but this is the current form.

    Ex Machina
    Inside Out
    Kingsman: The Secret Service
    Love and Mercy
    Mad Max: Fury Road
    Me and Earl and the Dying Girl
    Paddington
    Spy
    What We Do in the Shadows
    While We’re Young

    Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter

    Mad Max: Fury Road

    Slow West

    I’ve been TV focused for much of the year, but of what I’ve seen so far, three films are guaranteed to be among my favorites of the year:

    – “Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem”
    – “The Last Five Years”
    – “Time Out of Mind”

    Other favorites so far:

    – “Amy”
    – “Clouds of Sils Maria”
    – “Jimmy’s Hall”
    – “The Look of Silence”
    – “Slow West”
    – “When Marnie Was There”
