The Dissolve’s [UNOFFICIAL] Best Films of 2021

Happy New Year once again, Letterboxd! The lists are compiled, the votes are tallied, and we can sort of imagine what the Dissolve's year end list might look like. This year at the movies was interesting for me; I made it to the theater a whopping FIVE times! (6 if you add seeing Memoria in Chicago on January 2nd, which means that I managed to see 4 of the movies on this list on a big screen.) Part of that is covid, the rest of it is life and work and parenting. But with more movies debuting on streaming earlier, it's easier than ever to catch up on the best of the best, and that's what we have on this…
