I thought I'd log my top ten films of... "The Tens" (just doesn't sound right) the last decade, 2010 to 2019. Worryingly, I'd forgotten seeing many of the films I've posted and Tweeted about. When devising my list I was trying to decide whether to place the films based on what I think about them now, or what I thought about them in the moment when I was publishing my little reviews. I've decided on the former – the films that have stayed in my memory and would willingly watch again.
Under the Skin Grand Budapest Hotel Hunt for the Wilderpeople Melancholia The Social Network It Follows A Field in England Limitless The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Upstream Colour
To be honest, only the top three are in the right place. I'm not sure about the positions of the others.
Under the Skin just blew me away and the more I found out about the way it was filmed just cemented its place in my list. I don't think I've seen a film since that betters it. I feel wery wery clever and Smuglington McSmug that this film is also at the top of many film critics' decade lists.
Bub'lin' under in no particular order...
Sightseers Killer Joe Behind the Candelabra Annihilation Nebraska Mad Max Fury Road The Goob God’s Own Country The Stone Roses: Made in Stone Kill List Call me by your Name The Babadook Shaun the Sheep The Movie Whiplash Only Lovers Left Alive (winner of best film title) Mindhorn Dunkirk
I suppose these are the ones that have stayed with me the most:
