I missed a bunch of movies in 2019, but of the ones I saw, here are my 10 favorites in no particular order:


The Last Black Man in San Francisco
Jojo Rabbit
A Hidden Life
Parasite
Apollo 11
The Farewell
Avengers: Endgame
Dolor y gloria (Pain and Glory)
Ready or Not
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood


As usual, I could easily go beyond 10, but I'll just leave this one there. I will, however, add a list of movies I enjoyed that may have been forgotten or overlooked (some of my top 10 fit in this category as well). Anyway, 10 more mention-worthy films that may have gone below the radar in 2019:

The Mustang
Gloria Bell
The Biggest Little Farm
Arctic
The Art of Self Defense
Happy Death Day 2U
Fighting with My Family
Greta
Godzilla: King of Monsters
