There was so much quality filmmaking this year, but something I took away from this year in film was the relative nature of the characters I saw on screen. I related with so many and even identified myself explicitly in a few. I could go on forever about the films I’ve decided to share with you, but I would rather you take the chance and check them out. They were what kept me going through this year, and I’m hoping next year brings us an abundance of strong narratives, lyricial cinematography, incredible scores and music supervision, and more.
