2020 doesn't just mark a new year, it's the dawn of a new decade. Like several other critics and outlets, I too have taken this opportunity to reflect back at the past 10 years and have come up with my list of favorite films. Some have resonated even more over the years, whereas others were nearly forgotten.
Some of my "top" films of previous years also haven't held up quite as well to the rigors of time, but ALL of these films still are powerful, emotional and represent the best of cinema in all genres. So let's get to it, shall we?
There are of course many GREAT films that have seen release over the past 10 years, and first up, here are my "Honorable Mentions" that fell just short of the Top 20:
Honorable Mentions: "The Spectacular Now," "Youth," "Blue Valentine," "The Artist," "The Cabin in the Woods," "Trumbo," "Lion," "Sicario," "Burning," "The Kid With A Bike," "The Handmaiden."
