Shelf Survey: The Best Things We Watched in January

There’s no doubt the writers of That Shelf are passionate about what they’re watching and no better question to ask a film lover than “what’s the best thing you’ve seen recently?”

Whether new or old, something they’ve watched for the first time or the 50th time, we’re putting that question out to our staff on a monthly basis to find out what the best thing they’ve watch all month is and why it sticks out in a sea of viewings. And just like our team, it’s a diverse look at films across years and genres.

See the full list and reasons why these titles made the cut, plus our writers share the best TV show they're watching here:

  • Just Mercy
