10 Best Films 2015

I do this every year--when I remember--but always with caveats because, unlike many critics, I do not see every leading film (although I sometimes wonder if they actually have seen half the films they rave about, given what they write).  Anyway, here is my current top ten, with possibly one or two added when I do catch up.   It looked like a pretty good year  not long ago but then came many disappointments so the decline of the past few years continued....And see notes at bottom.  These are listed in very approximate, not precise, order of favoritism.  You will note the absence of superheroes, sequels, smash and crash.  My top film for 2014, by the way, was Ida.

Office activities are very useful in business meetings, workshops, corporate event seminars and conferences. Where games and activities help delegates to see things differently and use different thinking styles.
