The Best Movies of 2020 (So Far)

 

unnamed-2

We are now halfway through the year and as has become an annual tradition here at The End, it’s time to look back at the best movies of the year so far. As I discussed in the 2013 halfway post, the consensus movie-dating system is nonsensical and posits New York as the center of the universe. Far more logical (and much easier to use) is a system reliant on imdb’s dating system, which locates a film in whatever year it first played for an audience. That’s what we use here for all Rankings & Awards as it’s the most fair to all eras and areas. (A dating system reliant on playing in a certain locality I think can be valuable for a publication that is geographically specific, like a local newspaper or website. But here at The End, we have a global reach.)

A by-product of the system is that a number of films that first go into wide-release in any given year actually had their premiere in the year before. A number of the films on many critics’ halfway-point lists will include these films, films that find their proper home here on my 2019 list. And so here we have two lists: the Best Movies of 2020, following the strict imdb dating system, and the Best 2019 Movies of 2020, which includes those films from last year (and a couple from years before that) that you might find on a more chronologically-illogical list. On this list I’m including anything that didn’t get a theatrical release but was made available on VOD and is therefore eligible for this year’s Seattle Film Critics Awards. For obvious reasons, the New York theatrical release standard is even more nonsensical this year. I also have a third list, Best Unreleased Movies of 2019, of last year’s films that have yet to see a New York release and therefore don’t (yet) exist by the standards of most critics. And there’s a fourth list, a halfway version of my annual Best Older Movies list, counting the top movies I saw for the first time this year that are more than a few years old.

Since the last update I haven’t done much of anything. It was on March 14th, school was shut down the day before and I’ve been trapped here with my kids ever since then, and will be for the foreseeable future. So while I have watched some movies, the only review I’ve published in the last several weeks was on Sound! Euphonium: The Movie – Our Promise: A Brand New Day. Otherwise I’ve just been making my kids watch classic Hollywood movies while I watch a bunch of classic Bollywood movies I really should have seen by now (so far I’ve almost doubled the number of Indian movies I’ve seen in my life, I’ve got a running list of them at letterboxd of course.

Since the last update the new year has come and gone along with award season. I counted down my favorite film discoveries of 2019, my favorites of the books I read in 2019, my favorite 220 movies of the 2010s, and handed out the Endy Awards for 2019. I contributed some capsule reviews to InReview Online’s Best of the Decade series (on Meek’s Cutoff, Romancing in Thin Air, Uncle Boonmee and some others), and I wrote yet another Ash is Purest White blurb for their end of the year list. For Frame.land’s Directors of the Decade feature, I wrote about Hong Sangsoo. I also participated in end of the year polls and awards by Senses of Cinema, the Murials and the Seattle Film Critics Society. And I appeared on SIFFcast’s two-part end of the year show. For the Mubi Notebook’s end of the year festivities I contributed an image for the 2010s and fantasy double features for 2019.

Also at The Notebook I wrote about Only Cloud Knows and Ip Man 4, Jia Zhangke’s I Wish I Knew, the Hong Kong series at the Rotterdam International Film Festival, and Fruit Chan’s Made in Hong Kong. At Seattle Screen Scene I reviewed Enter the Fat Dragon, and The Rise of Skywalker. On the Film Stage Podcast I talked about the Shaun the Sheep movie Farmageddon.
