We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the dark. Spending most of your year sitting in a darkened room watching films is no easy task. And while our desires must always remain unfulfilled, our fantasies come alive and film reveals to us who we are. It knows us better than we know ourselves.

And so as 2015 draws to a close, we asked the Film Ireland reviewmanoids to look back over the year and pick out their personal highlights.

After feeding the results into our huge Electronic Numerical Integrator And Computer, it beeped out 10 of our favourite films.
