Favorite Movie Discoveries of 2019: My Top 15 (up through 2018)

It’s always fun looking back over the previous year’s movie discoveries, but I know everyone isn’t as interested in going through each decade’s discoveries, so here’s my Top 15 list of movies that I enjoyed the most from all eras, ending at 2018, since I’ll be posting my Best of 2019 movies soon.

These are the movies that I thought about the most this year, films that surprised, challenged, intrigued, fascinated, and moved me. There’s a lot of variety here not only in years, but also in genres, styles, directors, and countries. This list is chronological; I don’t rank them. You can click on the links to find out more information about each film. I hope you find something here to explore for 2020.
