The 35 Best Films of 2019

2019 was a trying year. The movies have always reflected that state of the world, the state of ourselves. It's no wonder that some of the year's finest films ( A Hidden Life , Waves , One Child Nation ) deal with trauma through acts of forgiveness. This isn't a rah-rah moment for the world. We are hurting. But through these gestures of introspection and attempting to understand what could manifest such negativity in our lives, we become a new kind of strength. The cinema, once again, invigorates us. 35.  Atlantics  Directed by  Mati Diop   34.  The Two Popes  Directed by  Fernando Meirelles 33.  The Souvenir  Directed by  Joanna Hogg 32.  The Report  Directed by  Scott Z.
