    When's this wrapping up? Need to watch a few things before I make a list.

    Also, is Dragged Across Concrete being counted for 2019? I'm sure I listed it in the 2018 thread.

    Thanks to Wainds for taking a billion years to wrap this up, ended up finally seeing Portrait of a Lady on Fire and absolutely loved it, put it in my numero uno spot. Might regret that later, oh well. Fucking amazinggg.

    Also watched Besson's Anna (basically a remake of La Femme Nikita with John Wick-style action and less plot) and The Wild Goose Lake which has a lot of potential, filmed very nicely, but I kinda felt like it dragged a bit.

    If this stays open another week I could actually post a list. Considering that now 4 of the '2018' films I've seen are 2019 under the fresh year criteria (1st non-festival screening in an English-speaking country). Just got 2 I'm planning to watch.

    6. Lords of Chaos
    7. High Life

    Doctor Sleep was fucking awesome, decided to add it to my list. Was it a bit Hollywood blockbusterish at times? Sure but I loved its unapologetic dedication to its own world and all the psychic stuff was really engrossing (many parallels to a Warhammer book I'm reading right now), also great cast.

    I kinda wish I watched The Shining again before watching this, but oh well.

    Finally I have some free time at hand.

    In order:

    Joker
    1917
    Parasite
    The Irishman
    Togo
    Quien a hierro mata
    Intemperie
    Alita: Battle Angel
    The Farewell
    The Lighthouse
    2 Popes

    Pretty decent year so far. Joker wins over 1917 and Parasite not for the film itself (in pure "technical/objective" terms, 1917 is the best), but for its meaning to these days. Joker is an era defining movie.

    Not sure if this is ever going to get wrapped up but fixed up my list a bit.
