We tried to narrow down this list to a manageable ten (or even fifteen) but it was a rough year and <>nsb truly believe we find solace on screen, so why excise any single film we enjoyed out of recognition in order to satisfy some arbitrary metric? We believe all of these films deserve to be recognized in one way or another.

These are not sorted in any order other than color of the poster. Chromatic organizing is something <>nsb is super into right now.

As always this list exists without having seen a few films. Those include Phantom Thread, mother!, Hostiles, Molly's Game, I, Tonya, Beach Ratsand The Shape of Water (which if we see this coming week, we fully expect to love, so expect an update.)
