This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discussed our favorite films of the year so far in 2016. This year may be a bit divisive depending on who you ask, but if you ask us, it has been a real good year for film so far. We’ve already seen some great gems from Richard Linklater, Jeff Nichols, the Coen brothers, John Carney as well as other notable directors. This year’s summer blockbusters may be hit or miss, but early on in the year, Deadpool, The Jungle Book and Captain America: Civil War took the box office by storm and are films worthy of contention for this list too.
