Yes. It’s the day you’ve all been waiting for (if you live a very sheltered life). This morning we publish our choices of the best films and music of the year. Please feel free to add your own suggestions here and comment on our picks. Last year, the readers’ films tallied surprisingly closely with my own choices. This year, having been a tad more obtuse, I suspect that will not be the case. Then again, you may surprise me.

L to R: Clarke, Weerasethakul. Brown envelope not pictured.

At any rate, have a glimpse and give us your top fives, tens, twenties or whatever. Whenever I get a chance I will  tabulate them into a readers’ top ten. The world quakes in anticipation.

Apologies for the tersness of this message, but I am currently stuck in an airport writing on one of of those  coin-operated things. Being an Ulster Protestant, I am far too mean to put in any more money.

The information will appear here shortly after this post goes live. Ms Brady’s list is also there for perusal.

Here’s my top ten to be going on with.

1. Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives

2. The Illusionist

3. A Prophet

4. A Room and a Half

5. Exit Through the Gift Shop

6. Bad Lieutenant

7. Splice

8. A Single Man

9. Lourdes

10. Mother
