THE GUARDIAN NAMES SON OF SAUL THE BEST US-RELEASED FILM OF THE YEAR


The Guardian has released lists of the best films released in 2015 for three international territories: Australia, the UK and the US. On SOS, I'll feature the US list - the only one which I'll count toward the SOS Critics' Tally. Nemes Laszlo's Cannes Grand Prix winner Son of Saul is declared the best film of the year by these critics, placing higher than all of the current awards season frontrunners.
