KPK on the Cinema: “All 118 Films I Saw in 2016 and How I Rated Them”

Cinema

*

> 2016 was not a stellar movie year for me. With my travels to Ireland and the various disruptions in my life, it’s been tough to see all the titles I am excited about. Below you will find every film I saw in 2016, rated between one star and 5. (Be advised: 5-star films only receive that designation by standing the test of time. It takes at least a decade for a film to prove itself a “classic”)
