There are suggestions that 2015 has been a 'weak' year for cinema, and while it's true that it hasn't quite been the year that, say, 2014 was (Boyhood, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Nightcrawler, Citizenfour et al), it remains that 2015 has been a fine year for film. And, in this fine year, in amongst the big-budget blockbusters and the nearly-but-not-quites, have been some bona fide great movies; a selection of pictures that, down the line, will almost certainly be looked upon as classics, even if they're a little underseen right now. Featuring classics of their genres and some outright classics in general, here are eight great movies that refute anybody who believes that 2015 has been a let down. Note: A few of these films, released last year Stateside, will feel more like 2014 releases. However, their early 2015 release in the UK renders them eligible for inclusion.
