Cinema has always been an escape, and that escape was sorely needed in 2020. Unfortunately, it was often difficult to get that full immersive experience in a theater during a pandemic. In fact, only one of the movies that made my top 10 list this time around was viewed that way, while the rest I took in at home while doing my best to ward off distractions. So with that in mind, I’m in the mood to just celebrate what I loved most about the movies that I loved that somehow found a way to arrive into the world in the past 12 months. So get ready for a tidal wave of enthusiasm as you read ahead!
