Favorite Recent Movies watched in 2016

Last year I focused on movies that were five years old and made a 2010 Redux list. I tried that again this year, watched a bunch of 2011 movies that I hadn’t seen, but really was trying to catch up on recent movies in general. So instead of a 2011 Redux, here are the best things I saw from the last five years.

1. Ernest & Celestine (2012, Stéphane Aubier)
2. Song of the Sea (2014, Tomm Moore)
3. When Marnie Was There (2014, Hiromasa Yonebayashi)
It was a good year for animation at our house.

4. Night Moves (2013, Kelly Reichardt)
5. La Sapienza (2014, Eugène Green)
