We’re in March of 2021, and yet 2020 feels like it will never end. But it’s finally time to wrap up at least one aspect of the year from hell. Over the next two weeks I will count down my top ten movies of 2020.
For the purposes of the list, I’m using this year’s Academy Awards definition of 2020 as January 1, 2020, through February 28, 2021. That allows me to include movies that had to skip the usual “one week in New York and Los Angeles” qualifying period before opening wide earlier this year. This isn’t much different than any year, where I don’t catch up with many Oscar contenders until January or February.
