Despite seeing more films in 2015 than I can count or remember, I am way behind on my to watch list. Not everything I saw was great, but Sicario and Ex Machina are definitely at the top of my list. Both are dark, intense dramas that left me feeling very uneasy.
However, the film that made the biggest impact on me this year, was a 17-minute documentary called Curt. If you’re a surfer, or a parent, or if you know someone who has been affected by autism — basically, if you are human — you will be very moved by this piece. I can’t recommend it enough. You may want to keep a box of tissues handy. Or two.
