2020 Top Ten

Not a banner year! Tenet is already an all-time favorite but that aside, most of the new stuff that excited me in 2020 — ZeroZeroZero, Normal People, How To with John Wilson, An Evening with Tim Heidecker, The History of the Seattle Mariners, to name a few — I don’t really think of as film, so despite each of the above being on LB, and despite the line separating film from TV being blurred more and more with each passing year, I’ll stick to traditional movies for this list. Haven’t had a chance to rewatch any of 2-10 so the order is pretty loose. On to 2021, which looks absolutely loaded.
