Best of 2018: Clayton Davis’ Top 10 Films of the Year

AwardsCircuit's owner shares his favorite films of the year...

The Top 10 films of the year have already been announced based on my Personal Ballot and Winners published earlier today but this post gives the order (which many people value more than the list themselves).

Generic feelings about the 10 films: I believe that there may be two all-timers among them.  Films that 25-30-50 years from now, the film community and myself will come back to very often to take in and just gaze at its beauty.

Overall, the year was gratifying in the sense that the good stuff was REALLY good and the bad stuff wasn’t THAT bad.

Down below, take in MY top 10 films of 2018. Remember, the AwardsCircuit community will have their say with the ACCA awards, which opens on January 14, 2019.  Make sure you vote.  If you missed a part of the Best of 2018 series, click here.
