Finally!! I was wondering when would this be up. It’s always fun to see the staff’s favourite movies. And this was indeed a great year for film.

My own ranking:
1. The Irishman
2. 1917
3. Parasite
4. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
5. Ford v Ferrari
6. The Lighthouse
7. Ad Astra
8. Uncut Gems
9. Pain and Glory (Dolor y Gloria)
10. Joker

It’s so strange that more than half of those were actually BP nominees at the Oscars. Doesn’t happen often for me but so glad this year it did.
