Best Films of Last Year


Best films of the year list are everywhere, and depending on your window into the world of cinema those lists tend to have a very similar order and feel. Well FWOAC does things a little differently. Rather than being held to the feelings of the moment, Jacob and Pat allow a little time to pass before unveiling their favorites of a given calendar year.

The manner by which those lists are built is completely different, but long after award shows, timeliness, backlashes, and fanaticism dies out before FWOAC recounts the year that was 360-some days in the past. Here you'll find links to those shows as well as each host's list. Remember, the quality and impact of any art is never truly known until history has its say.
