Best 2019 films in 2020

The first category of the Year in Review is a category to look at the top films that had been released in 2019 but I had not seen until 2020. This could be be films that had been released in limited release for Oscar consideration or limited release because of another release schedule. Because I do not want to include 2019 films on my 2020 list, I came up with this adjustment. This year there were four films that hit this category.

#4. Pain & Glory.

This is a Spanish speaking film featuring a great lead performance from Antonio Banderas. Banderas received an Oscar nomination for this role.


#3. Jay & Silent Bob Reboot. The return of the duo of Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes to their iconic roles in a story featuring Jay’s unknown daughter.

#2. Just Mercy. Michael B. Jordan is a lawyer and he is trying to save Jamie Foxx who is on death row. Race court battle that is compelling as can be.

#1. 1917. I loved this movie. It may have been near the top of the list last year had I seen it before the year ended (probably #3 behind Endgame and Jojo Rabbit).
