Rex Reed’s Best Movies Of 2016


Rex Reed, the well-known American film critic, has released a list of what he thinks were 2016’s best movies of the year.

Reed, who has previously written for Vogue and The New York Times, released his annual list along with the disclaimer that he hoped the best movies of the year would be saved for last.

Reed credited factors such as “internet streaming,” “pretentious critics who abhor anything with a plot,” and “new kids on the block who don’t know how to make movies with flair” for the lack of excitement in this year’s films.

Do you agree with Reed? See the list of what he says were 2016’s best movies, below.
