Dave Griffiths keeps counting down is top 30 films of the year. Today we look at the Top 10.

 

30. THE GENTLEMEN

After the year that we have had it is hard to believe that the brilliant Guy Ritchie film was a 2020 film – but it was it landed on January 1st. Ritchie at his pure best!!!

 

9. A WHITE WHITE DAY

 

Brutal and unrelenting this drama simply reminded me why I love Scandinavian cinema so much.

 

8. WAVES

Waves is simply one of those films that will stay with you a long time after you have watched the film. Brilliant acting and a film with a twist that you will never see coming.

 

7. UNDERGROUND INC: THE RISE AND FALL OF ALTERNATIVE ROCK

 

A brilliant documentary that not only celebrated the rise of alternative rock but also revealed the dark side of the music industry that forced a lot of bands to give up.

 

6. THE DRY

 

Harshly beautiful The Dry is the perfect crime thriller. Eric Bana is sensational and we are all reminded just how good Robert Connolly is as a filmmaker.

 

5. THE INVISIBLE MAN

Horror re-boots are not supposed to be this good, right? Somehow though Leigh Whannell managed to take an old concept and turn it into something so, so terrifying.

 

4. MONOS

 

Beautiful yet brutal at the same time. This foreign language film about child soldiers is destined to become a cult classic.

 

3. THE COMEBACK TRAIL

It is rare for a comedy to ever get this high on my Best Of lists but The Comeback Trail was something special. Funny, an all-star cast that brought their A-Game and a look back at Hollywood’s past – what wasn’t there to like?

 

2. THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON

 

Few films stuck with me in 2020 like The Peanut Butter Falcon. A touching story that also showed why Shia LaBeouf is never an actor that we should forget about.

 

1.ABOUT AN AGE

The perfect coming-of-age film. This Aussie film came out of nowhere and reminded us all just how great a film can be with perfect casting and screenplay that is full of natural dialogue. An Aussie classic!
