Ok it is almost time to say goodbye to 2016. I attended a few film festivals: Berlinale,Fantasia, and TIFF.
As well I caught as many interesting films as possible at various cinemas. Here is my best of list-in descending order- favouring indie, foreign, and nourish dramas it seems:)
Honorable mentions to: Swiss Army Man, The Witch, and Sing Street-they all deserve a place in here for sure. Toni Erdmann & Moonlight have yet to be seen; so I can’t judge.
More details on most of these flicks can be found in the 2016 blogs here on CineRadioWaves. Enjoy!
