Best of 2021: Top 10 Films of the Year


Another film year has come and gone with 2021 proving that cinema is still as vibrant as ever. I was truly delighted by the year's many works of art which subverted and exceeded my expectations with their entertaining storytelling, unforgettable characters and impeccable craft. Without further ado, here are my 10 favourite films of 2021, including links to reviews for my fulsome thoughts on these precious gifts.

Honorable Mentions: President, Summer of Soul, Passing, Citizen Ashe

10. The Lost Daughter
(directed by 
Maggie Gyllenhaal)

(directed by David Lowery)

"As this beguiling fantasia builds to its stunning conclusion, Lowery's heady (pun intended) screenplay asks pertinent questions of its protagonist and audience alike."


8. Flee
(directed by Jonas Poher Rasmussen)

"A heartrending odyssey of epic proportions, this innovative film is truly one of the highlights of 2021."


7. In the Heights
(directed by Jon M. Chu)
