Flickering Myth’s Top Ten Movies of 2016

Flickering Myth’s writing team present our top ten movies of 2016…

As 2016 draws to a close and we ring in the New Year, Flickering Myth’s writers have been putting our collective heads together to vote on the best cinematic offerings from the past twelve months. As always, we’ve voted on our individual top ten favourites, with those lists then collated to give us an overall Top Ten Movies of 2016.

It’s probably worth noting that the likes of La La Land, Silence, Manchester By the Sea and Hacksaw Ridge haven’t opened in the UK yet. Had they, they may well have featured in our countdown – or in the case of one of those that did make the cut, it would likely have finished higher.

Written and Directed by John Carney.

Starring Lucy Boynton, Ferdia Walsh-Peelo, Aidan Gillen, Jack Reynor, Percy Chamburuka, Mark McKenna, Kelly Thornton, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Ian Kenny, and Don Wycherley.

Synopsis:

A boy growing up in Dublin during the 1980s escapes his strained family life by starting a band and moving to London.
