A Subjective List of the Top Ten Movies of 2022

Video essayist Thomas Flight gave a subjective list of his ten favorite movies of 2022 in terms of subject matter, overall theme, reliability, and emotional response. His picks range from international blockbusters to well-watched smaller films to quiet sleepers that he feels deserve more attention.

Right now, my top 10 list very loosely ranked.
