My Favourite Films of 2019

Favourite new ones that I saw in 2019, whether on general theatrical release, at a festival or wherever else.

Also loved: After School Knife Fight / All Is True / The Art of Self-Defense / Bad Education / Rare Beasts / Rose Plays Julie / Rosie / Saint Maud / A White, White Day.

Arbitrarily omitted because, as usual, January releases feel like 3 trillion years ago and can’t possibly belong on this list: Burning / Destroyer / One Cut of the Dead / The Front Runner / The Mule / Welcome to Marwen (gee whiz, what a month).

Only seen yesterday, still processing, but thought excellent: Little Women
