Hollywood Reporter Critics Pick the Best Films of 2020A transcendent concert film, a bold #MeToo thriller and stellar dramas from Kelly Reichardt, Chloé Zhao and Eliza Hittman were among highlights of the year, according to THR’s chief film critic David Rooney.
So it’s almost miraculous that such a stellar crop of standout films emerged, even if we consumed most of them on our home screens.
The profusion of excellent documentaries this year was so ridiculously robust that by rights they should fill out their own separate top 10.
So rather than choose just one or two, I’ll list a handful of the nonfiction stunners that stayed with me.
Whether Spike Lee’s thrillingly immersive record of this sui generis theatrical concert is the best film of 2020 is open to debate.
