Top 10 Films Of 2022

2022 brought a refreshing variety of films with original animated features, big budget spectacles, indie dramas, art house films, weird films, and several autobiographical features. Below I have listed my 10 personal favorites of the year along with numerous notables. And here we go!

1. Everything Everywhere All At Once- The best film of the year and it’s not even close. An imaginative, thrilling, and action packed mind trip.

2. Apollo 10 ½- Why aren’t more people talking about this Richard Linklater animated film? It’s a wonderful ode to childhood and childhood imagination.

3. The Batman- The best DC film since “The Dark Knight.” A sprawling crime saga with Batman actually being a Detective for a change. 

4. The Banshees Of Inisheren- An engrossing black comedy about loneliness and a broken friendship with a truly great performance by Colin Farrell.

5. Kimi- A real return to form for director Steven Soderbergh. Zoe Kravitz has also never been better. 

6. Babylon- An energetic, unexpected, and emotional film about time, change, cinema, the film industry (warts and all), and the transition from silent to sound films.

7. TAR- Come for the long awaited return of director Todd Field and stay for the performance of the year by Cate Blanchett.

8. Armageddon Time- A thoughtful coming-of-age story about disillusionment, race, family, generations, and dreams.

9. The Menu- A deliciously warped satire about art, chefs, and pretentiousness with award worthy performances by Ralph Fiennes and Anya Taylor-Joy.

10. Jackass Forever and Jackass 4.5- After the turbulent last few years, sometimes you just need the wild, stupid and wholly dangerous antics of Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O and Danger Ehren to lift your spirits. 

Notables: “The Fabelmans,” “The Innocents,” “Funny Pages,” “The Pez Outlaw,” “The Outfit,” “Marcel The Shell With Shoes On,” “She Said,” “The Unbearable Weight Of Massive Talent,” “Belle,” “Beavis And Butt-Head Do The Universe,” “Mad God,” “Hollywood Stargirl,” “Dual,” “The Bob’s Burgers Movie,” “Rise of TMNT: The Movie,” “The Black Phone,” “RRR,” “Watcher,” “Emily The Criminal,” “Top Gun: Maverick,” “Pearl,” “Hustle,” “Fall,” “Sr.,” “Official Competition,” and “A Christmas Story Christmas.”
