My Top 10 Films of 2019

On this, the last day of 2019, I reflect back on 365 days of movie watching and pick the 10 films that affected me the most (PLUS an additional 10 that just missed that list).  I keep a ranked list throughout the year, but it can be a bit arbitrary when deciding between two films that each got 4 stars and you have to place one above the other.  Needless to say, I enjoyed everything on my “Best of” list very much.

* MY TOP FILMS OF 2019 *

It has been great seeing all of these movies, but it wouldn’t be the same if I didn’t have an audience with whom to share my passion. To all who read my blog, like my posts and keep the conversation going, I am truly grateful.

Thank you!

Wishing you a HAPPY NEW YEAR in a fresh decade that begins with 2020!

    So happy to see things like Booksmart, The Peanut Butter Falcon, Waves and The Farewell on here as they seem largely forgotten… My list is up at ericrwilkinson28.wordpress.com btw… Quite pleased with it – no fuss or frills this year

    • I’m actually seeing The Farewell and Booksmart on quite a few year-end lists. But you’re definitely right about The Peanut Butter Falcon. Waves should be getting a lot more love too.

  2. A mighty fine list Mark. I just recently saw Parasite and I have to say that movie blew me away. That would be the only movie on yours I would have bumped up into a Top 10 spot. What I would take out in favor of it, I have no idea. Wanted to see The Mustang but never got around to it.

    I also really loved what you said about Waves: “Shults’ camera is like a voyeur lingering on the interactions of a family in places where we should not be.” This movie is also likely a top 3 for me. I was utterly overwhelmed by the performances and the style. Top 3 for me right now might look something like: The Lighthouse; Waves; Parasite

    • It was tough ordering my list. Spots 11-13 also vied for the #10 position but The Farewell ultimately won out.

      I get the love for The Lighthouse. The cinematography must get an Oscar nomination.
