Best of 2017: Films

Here are Sinekdoks’ 20 best films of 2017.

Unlike previous years, 2017 was actually saving us a great year of cinematic history. While the award seasons seem cool without overly strong contenders, the year actually gave us a diverse, colorful series of cinematic wonders.

Best of 2016: Films

For all the flops and the bombs, and all the hypes and all the vibes, 2016 was an offbeat year for films. The year witnessed the falls of mega-franchise and sequels, but also saw the rises of smaller-scale gems. Controversy engulfed films on-screen and off-screen culminating in series of backlash to Oscars contenders; but, compassion has won over the fatigue audiences with the dormant genres awakening—say, musical, children literature and satire.

Among the finest gems of the year, Sinekdoks has hand-picked the top 20 films watched between the period of January 30, 2016 to January 28, 2017. While the numbers of films Sinekdoks has declined into 150 new films by the end of period, 2016 is still a very merry year with 13 films achieving 4 stars and around 20 others achieving 3.5 stars. Here’s the the list of Best Films of 2016 (with top 5 runner-ups)! Continue reading “Best of 2016: Films”

Best of 2016: Performances

My most favorite list in a year is always: Best Performances. It’s a list dedicated to the year’s most fascinating acting performances—as usual, I made this list without classification. There’s no leading or supporting category; there’s no male or female category; there’s no young or veteran category; there’s even space for screen-stealers. Among the most vigorous performances in 2016, here’s my list of 15 Best Performances of 2016! Continue reading “Best of 2016: Performances”
