It's that time of the year again, and once again eccentric filmmaker John Waters has shared his 10 favorite films of the year [via Artforum]. It's become a tradition for cinephiles to acknowledge the release of his list every year, not sure why, maybe it's the fact that he has such eclectic taste and that there is bound to be a film on his list that you feel deserves to be mentioned despite falling through the cracks . I particularly like this year's inclusion Xavier Legrand's "Custody," a must-see that will definitely make list, which should be published later this week, and Brian Taylor's "Mom and Dad" which features a BONKERS performance from Nic Cage.
Bruno Dumont’s “Jeannette: The Childhood of Joan of Arc” tops his list.
