Looking forward to the rest of the year (and the six weeks or so of the new year during which I’ll focus on catching up), I see a few very promising contenders, a few more films with solid potential, and a number of films which could be excellent but could just as easily be forgettable.
2015 probably won’t go down as one of the great film years; indeed, there hasn’t been a Gravity or Boyhood-level critical juggernaut (though Mad Max came fairly close), which at the moment leaves the remainder of the year (and the awards season) a little more up in the air than usual. And I for one don’t mind.
So here are 60 films which are opening tomorrow or further on down the line which I actively want, or have reason to believe I ought, to see. Let’s dig right in.
