2016 IndieWire Critics Poll:

Greg Cwik

Freelance

Additional Comments:

The 20-minute long handheld shot traipsing through the forlorn village and along the curvaceous hillside roads in “Kaili Blues” is the best single shot of the year.

Ralph Fiennes dancing in “A Bigger Splash” is the best scene of the year.

“The Lobster” has the best final shot of the year, with the trains turning back the clocks in “Kaili Blues” a close second.

“Wiener-Dog” is the best-looking bad movie of the year.

The reveal of the newborn baby in “Elle” is the funniest visual gag of the year.
