A nice year-end supercut, designed to be a comment on movies themselves:
There is something weird about the way the movie year is stacked, a dismal beginning in the early months, wild rides in the middle, and a rush of almost overwhelming quality and sometimes, bliss, towards the end. The nominations lists that have come out over the past couple of days have been disconcerting, but I do think they speak to the fact that we had a lot of truly enjoyable movies and television this year. Watching this, I’m struck by how much fun I had even at movies that I didn’t think were spectacular. There’s a fair bit of dreck out there. But a lot to be grateful for.
