Shining a light on great films from the past 12 months we think didn't get the attention they deserved, and are worth seeking out in the new year
2016 has been one of the most turmoil-filled years in recent memory. Regardless of how you view recent events in the United States and abroad, you will probably agree these have been trying times.

Taika Waititi, the Kiwi writer-director behind last year’s blissfully funny vampire mockumentary (which we ranked as the 12th best movie of the year, but admittedly could have gone higher) returns with another must-see indie comedy, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, before the filmmaker moves into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with next year’s Thor: Ragnarok. Wilderpeople follows Ricky Baker, a hip-hop loving preteen who bounces from one foster home and juvie center to the next until he’s taken in by an aging couple (Sam Neil and Rima Te Wiata) in the Middle of Nowhere, New Zealand. Hunt for the Wilderpeople, which premiered to great reviews at the Sundance Film Festival in January, opens June 24.
