The 16 movies you should have seen in 2016

Writer: Naseem Randhawa

There have been thousands of Hollywood films released this year, but with big releases securing the attention of the majority, there are some underappreciated films of 2016 that have managed to fly under the radar. It is smaller limited release movies like these that don't exactly rely on the big thrills, cast names and gimmicky marketing - preferring to go the indie route with unusual and often unexplored tales to remind us why great storytelling allows movies to be considered as works of art in the first place. Some of the carefully selected films below may not have even seen a general release at our cinemas, but these 2016 titles deserves all the eyes and acclaim from movie lovers who can appreciate films that have great writing, brilliant acting and originality which is gradually becoming scarce. Here are the films you should've seen in 2016.


Hunt for the Wilderpeople

Before his "Thor: Ragnarok" is released, filmmaker Taika Waititi's "Hunt for the Wilderpeople" is a must watch to let you that Waititi can actually make a wonderfully flawless film. This New Zealand adventure comedy is about an abandoned juvenile delinquent named Ricky who is taken in by foster parents Bella and Hec (Sam Neill). When Bella dies, Ricky runs away into the woods fearing that child services will take him away. Hec finds Ricky, but Hec faces an injury that forces them to camp in the woods. What ensues is a unique tale between two unique individuals with clashing personalities.
