Lyzette’s Favorite Films of the First Half of 2018

Coupling with my albums counterpart, I also watched films this year! Significantly fewer films than albums this year, though. Once again, I won’t write about these in any detail just yet – you’ll have to wait for my year-end list for that! This is just what I’ve seen and loved from this year so far.

So far, I’ve watched thirty-nine feature films from 2018, and these are the fifteen I’ve enjoyed and highly recommend the most. Instead of arranging them by date seen, as I did with my 2018 albums list, I’ll just arrange this alphabetically. While it’s also too early to name a favorite from this year, I’ll be surprised if I find anything quite as perfect as Paddington 2.

Annihilation (dir. Alex Garland)

Black Panther (dir. Ryan Coogler)

The Death of Stalin (dir. Armando Iannucci)

Dirty Computer (dir. Andrew Donoho, Chuck Lightning, Emma Westenberg, Alan Ferguson, & Lacey Duke)

First Reformed (dir. Paul Schrader)

Game Night (dir. John Francis Daley & Jonathan M. Goldstein)

Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami (dir. Sophie Fiennes)

Hereditary (dir. Ari Aster)

Love, Simon (dir. Greg Berlanti)

Paddington 2 (dir. Paul King)

The Party (dir. Sally Potter)

The Rider (dir. Chloe Zhao)

Sorry to Bother You (dir. Boots Riley)

Support the Girls (dir. Andrew Bujalski)

You Were Never Really Here (dir. Lynne Ramsay)

(I have just now realized that three of my favorite films from this year prominently feature Tessa Thompson… so, yay for that)
