At the beginning of 2018 I decided to keep a list of all the films I watched at the cinema throughout the year. I offer only one explanation in regards to the order of this list; Phantom Thread probably deserves to be higher than number 4, it’s technically a better film than Black 47 but ultimately, whilst I loved Phantom Thread, I enjoyed watching Black 47 more.
1. You Were Never Really Here – Directed by Lynne Ramsay
2. The Shape of Water – Directed by Guillermo Del Torro
3. Black 47 – Directed by Lance Daley
4. Phantom Thread – Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson
5. Sicario: Day of the Soldado – Directed by Stefano Sollima
6. American Animals – Directed by Bart Layton
7. BlacKkKlansman – Directed by Spike Lee
8. Isle of Dogs – Directed by Wes Anderson
9. Lady Bird – Directed by Greta Gerwig
10. I, Tonya – Directed by Craig Gillespie
- Deadpool 2 – Directed by David Leitch: It’s daft but it’s a very enjoyable kind of daft.
- A Simple Favor – Directed by Paul Feig: A bit like Gone Girl or The Girl on the Train except that it remembers not to take itself too seriously.
- Suspiria – Directed by Luca Guadagnino: I’ve never seen the original so I can’t compare but, I did find this to be an enjoyable horror film which had the ambience of an authentic 70s horror film.
