No Time to Sleep - The Must-See Movies of 2016
Breaking down the definitive list to end all lists year by year. These are the movies that somebody somewhere believes are worth watching (for a variety of reasons).
This combines recommendations by AFI, Cahiers du Cinema, Den of Geek, Empire, The Guardian, Insider, Letterboxd, Metacritic, Mark Kermode, Mubi, New York Times, and Rotten Tomatoes, as well as the books 1001 Movies to See Before You Die, 501 Must See Movies, 101 Movies to See Before You Grow Up and Beyond Casablanca. I've also included Academy and BAFTA winners for Best Film, Best Foreign Language Film and Best Animated Film.
I've also now added BFI, Film Stories and Filmweb recommendations and the Palme d'Or winners, as well as removing any duplicates.
If you want an answer to which films from 2016 you really must watch before you die, they're right here...
