The Best Movie Moments of 2015

Kristian Lin
I saw more than 300 new movies in 2015. That’s well ahead of my usual quota for a 12-month period, by something like 10 percent. I’m not entirely sure how I did that. Anyway, I had lots of memories to cull from this year’...

Kristian Lin
I think it was Slate’s Dana Stevens who said that any critic would have to be a masochist to go back and look over their old “10 best movies of the year” lists. If it was her, I have no idea what she means, because I alwa...
