The ten choices features a great mix of foreign films (“White God,” “Timbuktu“), underrated efforts (“Far From The Madding Crowd“—glad to see it getting some love here) and popular hits too (“Mad Max: Fury Road,” “It Follows“). And one trend I noticed across all the choices were the great roles for women in almost every selection too. It has been a pretty diverse, and terrific time at the movies across the first six months of 2015, particularly if you’ve skipped the multiplex and decided to try more challenging and substantive indie and arthouse fare. Take a look below and let us know in the comments what your favorites so far have been.
