The Top 50 Films I Saw This Year

THESE ARE LIMITED TO ONLY THE FILMS I SAW THIS YEAR AND NOT JUST THE ONES THAT RELEASED IN 2020

I would like to begin by saying I hope all of you are doing well in these tough times. I would like to give a good reason as to why I haven’t been writing here but all I have is laziness to offer! I hope to change that in the coming days – I’m starting this with something like a recap of my year. Since the 1st of Jan this year, I have seen 312 films from all parts of the world. So, here are the top 50 films that made the biggest impression on me. They are split into 3 categories: Indian, foreign and English.
