Not quite the mid-point of the year but it’s always good to follow this particular trend. Below we list the five films that have impressed us most. What films have we missed? Let us know in the comments section below.
5. The Graduation. Dir: Cristian Mungiu
A strong start to the list from a director whose consistency in excellence continues to shine with this taut moral drama. It doesn’t quite reach the compelling intensity of 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days or Beyond The Hills but is still filmmaking of the highest order. Genuinely riveting and genuinely brilliant.
