With 2019 in the books, let’s take a look back at our personal favorites from this year!
With the end of 2019 being congested with quality films, we take a minute to highlight some we didnt properly review in Cinema Smack’s 2019 leftover roundup!
Writer/director Greta Gerwig follows up her wonderful debut film, Lady Bird, with an elegantly crafted and extremely well acted adaptation of the classic novel from Louisa May Alcott.
May el-Toukhy’s new film, Queen of Hearts, is a dramatic tale of forbidden love and the crippling emotional toll it takes on a family.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is a polarizing film that’s part damage control and part everything that fans have come to love from the franchise.
Todd Haynes’ new film, Dark Waters, is a tense legal thriller between a chemical giant and its own lawyer with a modest city population caught in the middle.
Writer/director Rian Johnson atones for The Last Jedi, his polarizing entry into the Star Wars saga, with his star studded and wildly entertaining whodunnit, Knives Out.
Aleem Hossain’s gritty cop drama with a twist, The Thin Orange Line, will remind viewers of simpler times in their lives and how things change with age.
Though not his best work, legendary director Martin Scorsese returns to his roots with The Irishman, a 3.5 hour long mob epic about the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa.
The Mr. Rogers biopic, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, isn’t quite the feelgood story that everyone was expecting but delivers a positive message and features a stellar performance from Tom Hanks.
