2015 Silver Stamps

By Dear Cast & Crew

Mailed on December 22, 2015

Dear Readers,

Every week, we try to evaluate films from a slightly different slant than your average review site. And every year, we like to sharpen that perspective by awarding the less heralded achievements in cinema. The Silver Stamps are, therefore, not just a way to review the year that was, but the highest and lowest honours we can bestow. So for the fourth consecutive year, we congratulate all those who made an indelible mark in cinema.
