Best Films of 2018

2018 was a year in film marked by parity. There doesn’t feel like much distance between film #1 and film #11, nor does it feel like a truly great film was released this year, just a lot of very good ones. Still, below a list of what we felt is the closest to an accurate ranking of all the films watched and reviewed this year. What’s notable is that 4 of the top 5 are directed by, and star, people of color in what was a banner year for minorities in film. Enjoy our list!
