The 100 Best Films of the 2010s

Yeah, the ratings here might not line up. This was more me going from my gut for which movies really stuck with me and shaped my thinking about movies and all the other stuff in the 2010s. Only one movie per director, which means there are about 75 outright masterworks left off this list. In all honesty, you could add another 100 and still have a list that is top-to-bottom unique and great movies. Took some other liberties. Sue me.

Best TV Shows (In Order): The Americans, Hannibal, Breaking Bad, Mindhunter, Bojack Horseman, Treme, Bobs Burgers, The Knick, Justified, Atlanta, The Good Place, The Girlfriend Experience, Halt and Catch Fire, Barry, Top of the Lake, Better Things, Dear White People, Mad Men, Key & Peele, Parts Unknown, Broad City, Better Call Saul, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Rectify, Girls, The Walking Dead, Documentary Now, Boardwalk Empire, Nathan for You, and Drunk History
