"Best of" 2021

Ranked-ish, in that I'm still feeling woozy from my booster (which already dates this list) but there's a flow if you've been following closely.

No standout winner, quite a few unexpected treasures.

Annette remains the most exhilarating and excruciating viewing experience I've had all year, mad respect. Woodlands is also on a level of its own.

Honorable mentions: Benedetta, Old, History of the Occult, Spencer, All Light Everywhere
