The 5 Must-See Movies of 2019


As someone who is pretty picky about movies and prefers to watch a lot of old, foreign, and generally weird shit by most people’s standards, I thought I was gonna have a tough time picking out five gems to write about from the increasingly PC and conformist year of 2019. It turns out I have a terrible memory and actually saw a ton of new movies in theaters last year, in fact too many good ones to only talk about 5 without at least going off on a few tangents. In this article, you may find some fairly hot takes, but if nothing else you will see just how many truly great movies still come out each year that can appeal to both the mainstream and the biggest old-timer douchebag critic you could imagine, which speaks to how cinema and its audiences might actually be changing for the better.
