HEAVY Cinema’s resident film reviewer Dave Griffiths begins his countdown of the best films of 2020 as he goes through numbers 30-21.
Jesse Eisenberg reminded everybody about just what he good actor he can be with his World War II drama Resistance in which he played mime Marcel Marceau.
29. 23 WALKS
While it could have easily become just another ‘oldie romance’ 23 Walks went that step further and explored how many families and the Government cast aside the elderly.
28. WORDS ON BATHROOM WALLS
You don’t normally expect to see a young adult film make a best films of the year list but Words On Bathroom Walls is not your typical young adult film – great visuals mean this film will stick in the mind of its audience for a long time to come.
27. JUST MERCY
Hard-hitting and dramatic Just Mercy had the same impact on me as movies such as Mississippi Burning.
26. HONEY BOY
Shia LaBeouf not only reminded the world what a good actor he can be but also revealed his skills as a filmmaker with the hard-hitting Honey Boy.
I loved this movie for all the reasons that others hated it. It drew its audience in and then turned the world right upside down with a twist that nobody saw coming.
24. KNIVES OUT
An all star cast and even more important – a whodunnit that actually worked. Yep Rian Johnson’s films have made by Best Of Lists before… and he has done it again.
23. DARK WATERS
Mark Ruffalo was a standout in this courtroom drama that delivered a message that all should hear.
22. MOTHERLESS BROOKLYN
An all star cast delivered in this under-rated crime thriller. This was a piece of Edward Norton brilliance.
21. USE ME
Part drama, part mockumentary Use Me is a film that deserved a lot more recognition than it ever received.
