It’s that time again: to undertake the mammoth task of organising the best movies from across the year, and squeezing them into a list that will – hopefully – provide a sort of map of 2015’s cinematic landscape. Entries are by UK release.

Honourable mentions: Tangerine, Listen to Me Marlon, The Wonders (Le meraviglie), Bad Hair (Pelo Malo), Mr. Holmes, London Road, Glassland, John Wick, Force Majeure (Turist), The Forbidden Room, Jauja, The Walk, Closed Curtain (Pardé), The Last of the Unjust (Le dernier des injustes), Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter.
