Our favorite movies of 2019, brought to you by the writers and editors of Hyperallergic.
From A Hidden Life (courtesy Fox Searchlight)
There’s a sea change coming, both literally and figuratively. Amid growing awareness of the dangers of climate change and increasing unrest over economic inequality, trouble increasingly brews over what kind of world we’re going to create. Cinema reflects these anxieties and conflicts, and the best movies of this past year do so in indelible ways — sometimes humorous, sometimes tragically, sometimes brutally, and sometimes all of those (and more) at once. Hyperallergic polled some frequent contributors on film to find their favorites of 2019, and then assembled their top picks in this list. Many of them are available for you to watch right now, so get to it! —Dan Schindel…………
