TONI ERDMANN tops Film Comment's Critics Poll

Toni Erdmann

Leave it to Film comment to come up with a great list of the year's best films. I really can't complain about any of these, safe for maybe "Neruda" which I really think I should give a second shot. Also "The Lobster" is great for its first 75 minutes then it kinda dissolves into a mucky love story.
