It Follows
Saw It Follows at the Colony last night. The plot is built around existential dread so what's interesting is the characters' responses to suddenly confronting their own mortality. This point is explicitly reinforced by one of the characters quoting Dostoyevsky's The Idiot from an ebook reader intermittently during downtimes. First five minutes told me the filmmakers love the show Hannibal. Soundtrack is the best 1980s plodding synthesizer score that John Carpenter never recorded. Recommended. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/It_Follows

Mentioned in this article (not as best, just as first talked about) for a really nice use of space and distance.

(I've seen two-thirds of this list - haven't yet seen The Witch, Honeymoon, or Goodnight Mommy.)
