The Best Films of 2019

I had resisted putting out a best-of list late last year, opting not to participate in any of the critics polls because I felt there were too many gaps in movies-to-see list. But I've since done some catching up. That said, I haven't seen An Elephant Sitting Still, Hotel By the River, Knife + Heart, Long Day's Journey Into Night, Asako I&II, and a few other potential list-makers, so I could make some adjustments later.
