Best Films of 2020

I have been looking over other folks' Best of 2020 lists on Letterboxd, and I have to say: thank god I'm a critic. I have access to screeners of films from festivals, stuff that civilians don't get to see for quite some time. Hashtag blessed. Because if I were restricted to the garbage that's been streaming on Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon, I'd have given up on cinema back in April and right now I'd be making a Best of 2020 on Goodreads.
