ScreenAnarchy's Top 10 Movies of 2016

This year, 23 Screen Anarchists from 11 countries around the globe shared with us 129 films for consideration in our collective top ten movies of 2016.

Our criteria was simple: an individual contributor could include a film on their ballot had it been released in their home country in 2016, or they had seen it at a festival locally or abroad. 

Another fun fact (and a clue to what's on our list): The films included in our honorable mentions and our collective top ten total 2,911 minutes in running time. In other words, we spent a lot of time watching movies this year. And we wouldn't have had it any other way.

To celebrate, we present to you a gallery countdown, showcasing each film in the top ten with fresh takes from our contributors. And be sure to stick around till the end, where we present each individual's top ten ballot. Indeed, that is my favorite part as it spotlights our contributors' wide ranging tastes in the cinematic arts. No doubt you will discover a rich assortment of new titles to check out in the new year. Meanwhile, what about your own favorites? Or perhaps you think we missed something on our list... Chime in with a comment and we'll keep the discussion going!
