    They are the worst for how early they put out their list every year.

    Agree with 7 of their Top 10. Warmed up to Mad Max, even though it is still just a very well made blockbuster. Carol and especially 45 Years making it in is sublime. Two beautifully, slow burning film experiences.

    I’ve only seen five of their top 19 (isn’t it supposed to be 20?). The one I am thrilled to see on the list is my favorite documentary of the year – AMY (: There have been 3 films that have moved me deeply and made me think about things in a different way, and they are Amy, The Danish Girl and Room. I wasn’t an Amy Winehouse fan until I saw this film. It’s portrait of addiction was incredibly powerful, esp. love addiction. So sad yet so beautiful.

    Source ? Sounds credible enough, but I can’t find confirmation anywhere.

    Carol, Assassin and Mad Max need to replace Martian, Room and Spotlight in the GD experts predix. It’s like gods vs. ants.

    Why is Inherent Vice on these lists for 2015?

    It Follows can quite literally throw itself off of a bridge. I’m tired of talking about a film that can’t decide what it is and only follows its own rules when they’re convenient.

    It’s also hilarious to me how often they neglect the 12th month of every year. Even if they’ve seen everything (which… have they?) what is the frickin rush.

    On a positive note: Hey, Inside Out!

    They don’t have to release these lists so soon, but my thinking is that if movies really think of themselves so highly as to not reveal themselves until the latest possible moment for maximum award-age, they can wait and see if they’re actually memorable enough to make the following year’s list (like Inherent Vice).

    Why is Inherent Vice on these lists for 2015?

    Because it opened in Europe in 2015.

    The bigger question is why is The Look of Silence on their 2015 list when it was included on their 2014 list?
