One of my favorite discoveries of 2023 was Thomas Flight. His channel gives me hope that cinema is not dead. His Best Films of 2023 are a good reference of what was good.

And if you’re like me, and would rather just see the film list without any clips or criticism first, here they are:

  • Dream Scenario
  • Anatomy of a Fall
  • Fallen Leaves
  • Past Lives
  • May December
  • Godland
  • The Holdovers
  • Poor Things
  • The Boy and The Heron
  • Asteroid City

Out of all of these, I think Flower Moon is the only one with a complete story (haven’t seen them all yet, though). Past Lives was beautiful, but wasn’t all there in terms of narrative.

Looking forward to seeing the others. 😃
