Scott’s Favourite Films of 2019

little thumb

I’m a few days late to the party on this because I wanted to catch up on as many things I’d missed throughout the year as possible before finalizing this list, and I still haven’t seen everything I wanted to see, but I think it’s time to get this posted. 2019 has been an absolutely excellent year for film! I first started making these year-end lists back in 2016, and each year since then they have featured exactly 25 entries. I’ve been trying for days to narrow this down to 25 without feeling like I’m leaving something important off the list, and I just can’t do it. So for the first time ever, I’m doing my top 50 films of the year, a true testament to what a great year at the movies it’s been.

Things from my watchlist that I still haven’t seen: 1917, Atlantics, Blinded By The Light, Clemency, Crawl, The Dead Don’t Die, Diane, Fast Color, Honeyland, I Lost My Body, and The Nightingale.

2020 is the year I plan to actually get this site up and running the way I’ve always intended for it to be. Following the craziness of awards season (Golden Globes predictions getting posted later today) I hope to move into a groove of weekly updates of new film reviews throughout the year. Thank you all so much for reading, and all the best in 2020!
