Letterboxd’s ‘Official’ Top 50 of 2020

To be updated on the weekends. It's ranked by avg l.b. user rating, extracted from here.

Excludes shorts and TV/music. Includes documentaries and festival films of 2019 that had their first national release in 2020 (i.e. First Cow, Bad Education, Saint Maud). Note: I only include confirmed 2020 releases, not generally undistributed 2019 films. The list does not include films that had some national releases in 2019 but U.S. releases delayed for 2020 (i.e. And Then We Danced, Bacurau, Corpus Christi).

There appears to be more 'making of' DVD featurettes on Letterboxd for recent films, i.e. Road to Roma, The Skywalker Legacy. I am excluding those documentaries for now, even if they're feature-length, unless they had theatrical distribution. Any feature-length…
