Yes, it’s March, and yes, this “best of 2016” list is way past due. But honestly, how could I in good conscience declare my 10 favorite films from last year without having seen future Oscar winners like La La Land and Moonlight (glad I waited for those!)? Becoming a first-time father in December certainly played a role in that delay as well, though that consequence is the least of the life-altering effects of parenthood.

Since most of the titles are pretty self-explanatory, I’m going with a simple clickable list format, for your convenience. Enjoy, and of course, keep it Crooked!
