Favourite Discoveries of 2020 đź’–

The year was shit, but I discovered some good movies. Here are some of the ones I enjoyed the most.

I can't quite put into words why, but Claudine was probably my favourite discovery of the year. I can't quite put into words why, but... something about it just got under my skin. The soundtrack also contains some of the best newly discovered music of 2020. It made me so happy to find the soundtrack on vinyl for $7 at a local used record store.

I'm only including films that came out prior to 2019 and 2020.
