‘Carol’ Tops Film Comment’s 2015 Poll

'Carol' Tops Film Comment's 2015 Poll

Film Comment magazine has posted the results of their annual critics poll, and Todd Haynes’ “Carol” tops the ranking of the year’s 20 best films. Barring the vagaries of national release dates, the list overlaps by more than half with the Sight & Sound poll‘s Top 20, including the same top three films in slightly different order. The highest unique result is “Clouds of Sils Maria,” followed by “Timbuktu,” “Spotlight,” “In Jackson Heights,” “Jauja,” “Tangerine,” “Brooklyn,” “The Diary of a Teenage Girl” and “Bridge of Spies.”

Film Comment’s list of best undistributed films is led by Hong Sang-soo’s “Right Now, Wrong Then,” followed by Athena Rachel Tsangari’s “Chevalier” and Ben Rivers’ “The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers.” The complete list of winners is below, and the magazine should be posting individual ballots and commentary to its site later in the week.
