MOVIESandSHAKERS 10 Best Films of 2020

THE FATHER -Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Colman in this film about the heartbreaking slow descent of dementia. You’ll see why Director Florian Zeller wrote it for Anthony Hopkins. 

PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN – Actress and Director, Emerald Fennell puts Carey Mulligan as the center of a thriller revenge plot against men. The plot keeps you guessing from start to finish.

MA RAINEY’S BLACK BOTTOM – Viola Davis is completely transformed and Chadwick Boseman gives his all in his last performance. Director Clark C. Wolfe does August Wilson proud. 

BOYS STATE – Extraordinary filmmaking exposes both the hope and fear about campaigns and our democracy. Great documentary in an election year. 

SOUL– A testament to the joy of living and following your passions accompanied by great jazz. Surprisingly mature subject for a Disney/Pixar film. 

SOUND OF METAL – Riz Ahmed is remarkable playing a musician losing his hearing. You’ll feel his pain. The sound design will blow your mind. 

DA 5 BLOODS – Spike Lee captures the camaraderie and the pain of Black Viet Nam vets who never left the horror behind. 

THE TRIAL OF THE CHICAGO 7– Sorkin’s raw look at the justice system run amuck 50 years ago with a bad ass ensemble cast. Relevant to today’s protest movement. 

THE SOCIAL DILEMMA – Eye-opening docudrama that may make you pause before tapping on any social media platform. You’re always being watched. 

NOMADLAND– Frances McDormand’s restrained portrayal of a woman living in isolation all too closely mirrors what we have been living through in the last year. 

Look for our picks in all categories coming up this award season,
