GOTY lists are a great way to learn about interesting overlooked games to add to one's backlog. As a movie buff, I'm always on the lookout for something new to watch, but there seems to be a severe lack of MOTY threads in the forums, so I guess I'll have to start one off.
My full top 25 list is posted over on Letterboxd at https://letterboxd.com/aznan/list/2018/ but here's the top 10:
A simultaneously sad and uplifting exploration of a family living on the outskirts of society and the consequences thereof.
- Eighth Grade
Super funny, purposefully cringeworthy, heartwarming tale of a thirteen-year-old's final days of eighth grade.
Better than Dario Argento's original, combining dance and gore has never been this effective.
The writer of Let the Right One In does to trolls what he previously did to vampires. Contains the best/weirdest sex scene in ages.
Incredibly beautifully shot film about the life of a maid in 1970's Mexico City.
A great slow burn (ha!) mystery thriller.
Great fun, but also a thought provoking look into the world of battle rap, in which only the most racist person stand a chance to win.
- First Reformed
Ethan Hawke gives a great performance as a priest who begins to question everything after meeting with an unstable environmental activist.
The movie's fantastic premise - boy sues his parents for bringing him into an unjust world - is barely in the film, but its telling of the events that lead up to that point is just as good.
- One Cut of the Dead
Japanese kind-of-terrible zombie flick turns into a wonderful celebration of low budget film making.
So, with that said and done, what are your picks?
