I think The French Dispatch is going to be my first 5/5 on first watch since Son of Saul. Loved it. Just... perfect.

Wish I could have seen it in cinemas. It needs a big screen. The detail is insane.

With some inserts, my top 10 has changed slightly. About to see Just saw Drive My Car at TIFF, so it might did sneak in.

EDIT: So did The Souvenir Part II. What in the hell is happening this year? Just for context, Malcolm & Marie is in my top 30 films ever made. You do the math on what ranks above it.

10: Nine Days
9: Oscar Peterson: Black + White
8: Licorice Pizza
7: King Richard
6: Titane
5: Drive My Car
4: Malcolm & Marie
3: No Time to Die
2: The Souvenir Part II
1: Dune

On a semi-related note, since I'm seeing Part II tomorrow, I finally got to The Souvenir, and that automatically joined my top 5 for 2019. I've heard universally from EVERYONE I know who has seen it that Part II is even better, so that should almost certainly make it into this top 10 as well.

C'mon C'mon was one of the films I saw yesterday and it was beautiful. Really heartfelt, really sincere, Joaquin was great but that kid is something of a revelation.

So is Jude Hill, for that matter. Belfast was great.


Went on b/w binge, watched both. Dug C'mon C'mon, wasn't hot on Belfast. Wish the project had been in different hands. Really liked that dance scene at the end though. (Also watched Hong Sang-soo's Introduction, but that wasn't much of a film at all to be honest).

Belgian Oscar-shortlisted film Playground also really impressed me. Like Dardenne's Son of Saul. Glad it's getting a bit of hype.

Forgot to post this on the 1st. I ended 2021 with 87 of the year's films watched. My final top ten submitted for FilmSpeak ended up being:

10: Licorice Pizza
9: Petite Maman
8: Raya and the Last Dragon
7: Titane
6: King Richard
5: Drive My Car
4: Malcolm & Marie
3: No Time to Die
2: The Souvenir Part II
1: Dune

FilmSpeak's final top ten (14 contributors):

10: Spencer
9: Licorice Pizza
8: The Suicide Squad
7: Belfast
6: Bo Burnham: Inside
5: Titane
4: No Time to Die
3: The Green Knight
2: Spider-Man: No Way Home
1: Dune

I feel it's noteworthy that, out of 14 top ten lists submitted, no two people had the same film at #1. The Suicide Squad was the only film to get enough points to make our top 10 without being #1 on any list. Contrast that to last year where Soul, the overall #1, topped three lists.
