Alright, so this is an unorthodox choice. I couldn't decide between a lot of iconic performances, so instead, here's a scene from Wilder's (and Pryor's) final film (but, uh... the dialog is in Portuguese... and stuff).
2016 continues to be a harsh mistress (as the next couple days will also note).
(2 votes, average: 8.00 out of 10) You must be a WGOM Citizen to rate WGOM Videos.
Fun aggregation: essentially, "The Best of [everything] - 2015" ranked according to number of mentions on critic's year-end best-of lists. You could probably go further with it, ranking according to average placement on lists, but for CoC purposes, this is more than enough info:
Movies: Carol - 82% of lists Spotlight - 77% Inside Out - 73% Mad Max: Fury Road - 73%
Television Shows: Master of None - 83% of lists Fargo - 83% Mr. Robot - 75% Mad Men - 75%
Books: Between the World and Me - 80% of lists A Little Life - 60% The Story of the Lost Child - 60%
Kendrick Lamar, To Pimp A Butterfly - 100% of lists
Vince Staples, Summertime ’06 - 63%
Carly Rae Jepsen, Emotion - 63%
And just for fun, because we at the WGOM are so hip, tied for fourth place are few the Citizenry crowed about this year:
Courtney Barnett, Sometimes I Sit and Think and Sometimes I Just Sit - 58%
Joanna Newsom, Divers - 58%
