What a year it’s been. Lots of dead musicians, more Enda, some Brexiteering and a Trump in the White House. However at the cinema, life seemed to continue as normal. We saw over 160 new films that hit screens this year and have picked out our favourites and chatted about them in the podcast. We will also publish individual lists – Nigel’s Top 10 and Páraic’s Top 10.
Looking for a consensus pick of our joint films of the year? Seems hard to look beyond Paterson, 13th, Mustang and Sing Street.
Thanks as always for listening every month, and reading our increasingly sporadic and middle-aged musings. Friends of Spooool lists will be posted Thursday 22nd.
