10 Incredible Movies You Might Have Missed In 2015
Anyway you look at it, it’s been a fantastic year for cinema. Mad Max: Fury Road, Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and even Furious 7 made sure that audiences going to see blockbusters were constantly enthralled, while Inside Out, The Hateful Eight, and Sicario proved that there was still room for originality too.
There are always some films that slip through the cracks, and this year was no exception. Here are ten that you might have missed out on. If you didn’t, well done. If you did, go them seen immediately, each and every one of them is fantastic for a variety of different reasons.
While Jason Segel and Jesse Eisenberg rightly took a whole heap of acclaim for their sterling performances as David Foster Wallace and David Lipsky, respectively,The End Of The Tour was further proof that James Ponsoldt is one of the most impressive American directors currently working. Part love story, part road trip, part biopic, part drama, part comedy, Ponsoldt doesn’t focus on one specific genre but allows them to mishmash together in a deeply human, compassionate, and affecting manner. Sure, Eisenberg and Segel’s performances are utterly stunning and give the film a subtle edge that is constantly present despite the fact that Lipsky and Foster Wallace are similar people with similar flaws, but its Ponsoldt’s decision not to hammer home the film’s dramas and tensions while keeping its beauty simmering underneath that made The End Of The Tour one of the year’s most enlightening films.
