Favorite Films of 2018

These were all released in 2018:

1.RBG

I hope Ruth Bader Ginsburg never dies. She’s my personal superhero.

www.imdb.com/title/tt7689964/?ref_=nv_sr_1

2.Black KkKlansmen

The acting in this was phenomenal and such an important story to tell…really makes you think about how we still have so far to go and how the present is in some ways repeating the past with all that has happened under fascist racist Trump. I’ve always wondered how terrifying it must have been to be the first African American police officer in a district but the real terror in this isn’t how Ron Stallworth was used to try to betray the force he joined against his people but, to me, the hideous lengths people will go to in order to reaffirm their own white supremacy and harm others in the process. It’s not that I am unaware of history…it’s the fact that hate crimes still keep happening because people are this hateful and ignorant.

www.imdb.com/title/tt7349662/?ref_=nv_sr_1

3.If Beale Street Could Talk

I’m always a little skeptical about film adaptations, especially for one of the best writers of all time, James Baldwin, but Barry Jenkins really does a great job in terms of bringing the beauty and terror in the original story with cinematic wonder. Also, this film has an incredible soundtrack. I was sad this didn’t earn more Golden Globes! I am even more devastated by the fact that the institutionalized racism of the prison industrial complex in America still exists and still splits up so many families.

4.Blindspotting

More than any other film this year, I felt like my heart was literally in my throat. Really phenomenal sense of acting and dealing with real modern issues of police brutality and gentrification, of racism and classism both in Oakland, California. There’s a really strong sense of the development of the different human relationships in this film. I feel like this was an overlooked gem from this year!

www.imdb.com/title/tt7242142/?ref_=nv_sr_1

5.Bohemian Rhapsody
I grew up listening to Queen and so I felt very nostalgic watching this and seeing how well they even synced up the Live Aid performance. Rami Malek really does a phenomenal job here and it’s an incredible life story to tell. I actually paid to watch this in the theater twice. I was singing out Queen songs the whole bike ride home.

www.imdb.com/title/tt1727824/?ref_=nv_sr_1

6.Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

I told myself I wasn’t going to cry in this film and then I sobbed so loudly I thought someone was going to have to escort me out. I watched Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood when I was a kid but had no idea about the man behind the show and saw some of the more heart wrenching segments he did about feeling not wanted or even assassination with new adult eyes…I also didn’t know about his friendship with François Scarborough Clemmons and I somehow missed how kind he had been to Jeff Erlanger. There were many years I didn’t watch as I grew older and I regret that a bit because I think Fred Rogers had a bit of wisdom for all of us at any age.

www.imdb.com/title/tt7681902/

7.Roma
I have to honor the fact that this film would have ranked higher if the director Alfonso Cuaron was indigenous Mexican vs. from white European ancestry. This film is absolutely beautiful to look at, though, (kind of reminds me of Fellini and Tati both) and I still think it celebrates the poor female caretaker who is more of a parent than the actual parents. However, his caretaker in real life should have received some money in exchange for her story…there’s some things on this back story I don’t feel quite comfortable with our it would have ranked higher.

www.imdb.com/title/tt6155172/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

8.Happy as Lazzaro

The first 30-45 minutes of this are super boring but keep watching-there’s a twist that turn this could be just a bunch of decent Italian countryside with white people being oppressed into an actual inventive storyline. I promise…even though it’s (primarily) about white people.

9.Burning

Korean director Chang-dong Lee took an approximate 20 page Haruki Murakami short story and made it into a 2 1/2 hour film so I’d really like to see what he could do with 1Q84! I re-read this story after seeing the film as I hadn’t read it in over a decade and I actually really like what was added to the film in terms of character development and plot. Best of all is the mood and overall arc of the film in my opinion and the cinematography as well!. I also think it worked to move the story to near the border between North and South Korea vs. Japan and set it during modern day times with the fragments of politics internationally lurking in the background.

www.imdb.com/title/tt7282468/

10.Black Panther-

I loved the wonder of Wakanda and I loved that my students of color have a superhero that resembles them to look up to. My only critique of the film is that there is enough of a plot regarding white people and their greed without having to pit an African American against an African.

www.imdb.com/title/tt1825683/?ref_=nv_sr_1

Stream free on Netflix: www.netflix.com/title/80201906

11.Into the Spiderverse-

Fantastic graphics and story line. I could have gone without the spiderpig or spiderham or whatever but this was a wild adventure, especially in 3D. I’m also a sucker for multiple worlds.

www.imdb.com/title/tt4633694/?ref_=nv_sr_1

12.Sorry to Bother You

I loved this film for it’s pro Union-anti capitalist and conspiracy theory with a ring of truth sentiment but the addition of elements of experimental fiction in it definitely made it more fascinating to me. Tessa Thompson is also amazing in this. For this being the first film directed and written by Boots Riley, it was fantastic and I’m hopeful that future films will be just as amazing or better.
