Ten of the films that I have most enjoyed in the last year

This week, I started a 12-week course of evening classes at the City Literary Institute in central London. The course is titled “Contemporary Cinema” and the tutor is the American John Wischmeyer. We have 25 students on the course, many of them with a deep knowledge of the movies (one woman goes to the cinema five or six times a week).

At this first session, we were invited to draw up a list of the top 10 films of 2018. I would find it really hard to select the best works of the year, but I did manage to construct a list of 10 films that I have particularly enjoyed in the past year. In alphabetical order, they are:

“Avengers: Infinity War” – my review here

“Black Panther” – my review here

“Cold War” – my review here

“First Man” – my review here

“Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again” – my review here

“Roma” – my review here

“Shoplifters” – my review here

“A Star Is Born” – my review here

“Widows” – my review here

“The Wife” – my review here

So as to demonstrate that the course would not always be about art house films, the tutor showed an extensive clip from a blockbuster success of last summer: “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” – my review here.
