Here's my list of the year, some older, mostly current. Links to trailers.
1. Fuocoammare (Fire at Sea)
2. American Honey
3. Hunt for the Wilderpeople
5. I, Daniel Blake
8. Les Blank's Burden of Dreams
9. The Lobster
NB: I find the quickest, most reliable way of deciding whether I'd find a movie worthwhile is to read the critic review snipets on Rotten Tomatoes. Ignore the aggregated "scores," anything above ~60 can be fantastic.
