I can’t watch TV shows. They all leave me cold unless I’m way sick in bed. I’m a movie kind of dude.
I saw about 80 movies this year, mostly at home while recuperating from eye surgeries (four!). Here are the new and newish ones that stood out. I’ve seen about half of the movies that are getting Oscar buzz. I’ll probably see some of the rest early next year.
Baba Joon (Israeli)
Manchester by the Sea
Hell or High Water
Coming Home (Chinese)
Son of Saul (Hungarian)
Hello, My Name Is Doris
If I Were You (Canadian)
Above and Beyond
