With a strange 2020 finally in the books, let’s take a look back at our personal favorites from the year in Cinema Smack’s Best of 2020!
Miranda July’s new film, KAJILLIONAIRE, is a weirdly touching story with an eccentric and magnetic lead performance from Evan Rachel Wood.
Patrick Picard’s feature length debut, THE BLOODHOUND, provides very few answers as a bizarrely hypnotic film in the vein of David Lynch.
Lawrence Michael Levine’s new film, BLACK BEAR, is a simple, yet fractured, tale of human interaction, point of view, and understanding.
Seth Breedlove’s new documentary, THE MARK OF THE BELL WITCH, effectively delves into Tennessean folklore but has a bit too much reenactment.
David Fincher does something completely different by tackling old Hollywood in his middling new film, MANK.
Andrew J.D. Robinson’s pseudo-documentary, WE ARE THE MISSING, is an engaging micro-budget thriller that maybe tries a bit too hard by its end.
Aneesh Chaganty’s sophomore feature, RUN, doesn’t live up to his previous work but is a fun and capable thriller with some flawed logic.
