Showdown

Uncut Gems

Most overlooked films of the 2010s

Add a list or tag with showdown:overlooked

For the last Showdown of the year—and the decade—we want you to list the ten films you feel are the most under-loved or overlooked of the 2010s. What did we all miss? What film, documentary or other strange and wonderful fare was criminally ignored? As a guideline, while you’re free to put any film in your list, the results of this Showdown won’t include any film watched by more than 15,000 of our members when the challenge closes. No, The Hangover III doesn’t count, and IndieWire can’t help: The King’s Speech literally won the Oscar for Best Picture (we kid, half their list of 20 qualify). Here’s your chance to champion the obscure!
