2015 was an undeniably great year for film. From the surprisingly jaw-dropping chaos of Mad Max, to the heart breaking beauty of Pixar’s Inside Out and the return of the almighty Star Wars franchise, film goers have been getting their money’s worth. But, every year there’s a handful of excellent movies that fall undeservedly under the radar. Here’s our pick of the best films you missed in 2015.
5. Slow West
You don’t have much of an excuse with this one because it recently appeared on Netflix’s ever growing roster. Following a Scottish teenager traveling across the 19th century west with a murdering drifter (Michael Fassbender) for an escort, it’s a slow burning masterpiece about violence, camaraderie and searching for lost love. Imagine if Wes Anderson decided to try his hand at a western and you’ll have a vague idea of how truly inventive and unique this film is. Fassbender is on top form as a ruthless but conflicted drifter and the film’s final act will truly blow you away.
