Best of 2022: Top 10 Films of the Year

With a whole new slate of films already unspooling before us, it's time for me to close the book on 2022. And what a great year it was, with Hollywood filmmaking making a roaring comeback post-COVID lockdowns while international auteurs gave us new ways to see the world. If there's one thing I'll remember about the year's best films, it's the prevailing commentary on the patriarchy and it's ruinous effect on families, friendships and individuals. The films forced us to reflect on our societies and how we can be better, and for that I am grateful. Here now, are my Top 10 Films of 2022:

Honorable Mention: Cha Cha Real Smooth


10. Nelly & Nadine
(directed by Magnus Gertten)
"A bittersweet, globe-trotting journey that encompasses an indefatigable love, as well as the broad tentacles of the monstrous Holocaust."


9. Bones and All
(directed by Luca Guadagnino)

 

8. Top Gun: Maverick
(directed by Joseph Kosinski)

 

7. Women Talking
(directed by Sarah Polley)

"Through their passionate words, it leaves you with much to ponder about religion, gender dynamics and the world at large."


6. Joyland
(directed by Saim Sadiq)
