Christopher Llewellyn Reed’s Top 10 Films of 2020

Written by: Christopher Llewellyn Reed | December 28th, 2020

As I did in both 2018 and 2019, I offer, in my below 2020 Top 10 list, my 5 favorite fiction films and 5 favorite documentaries, in alphabetical order. I pull these from the two separate lists I already published at Hammer to Nail (where I am lead film critic). I will soon, on my blog, publish a longer list, with additional runners-up and honorable mentions. Enjoy!

Despite the pandemic, studios and distributors, major and minor, kept on release a plethora of content throughout the year, though some of the big-ticket items were postponed until 2021. I was not such a huge fan of the ostensible blockbuster items this time around, and my list reflects my preference for the smaller movies. Since I have previously reviewed all of them, I hyperlinked the titles to those reviews (whether on this site or on Hammer to Nail).
