Seen 99% of what I wanted to now, so I think this safe to consider my definitive top 5 in no order other than alphabetical:

*still need to see Shoplifters and Beale Street
He held on. The dolphin and all the rest of its pod turned and swam out to sea, and still he held on. This is it, he thought. Then he remembered that they were air-breathers too. It was going to be all right.

Goddamn, still gotta see both these Paddington movies.
If I could move the night I would
And I would turn the world around if I could
There's nothing wrong with loving something you can't hold in your hand
You're sitting on the edge of the bed, smoking and shaking your head
Well there's nothing wrong with loving things that cannot even stand
Well there goes your moony man
With his suitcase in his hand
Every road is lined with animals
That rise from their blood and walk
Well the moon won't get a wink of sleep
If I stay all night and talk

I'll probably just skip the first Paddington because I'm not sure I need to watch it to be able to understand the second one, hehe.

Anyway, I just finished Climax, so here's my top 5, I guess:
1. Climax
2. Burning
3. Suspiria
4. Isle of Dogs
5. Shoplifters

Worst film:
Mandy

There's still a lot I haven't seen yet though.

A Bread Factory, Part One: For the Sake of Gold
A Bread Factory, Part Two: Walk With Me a While

Watched this week. Really good! Not sure I completely got (or the film needed) some of the "performances" of Part Two, but I thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing. I think Tyne Daly might get my vote for best supporting actress.

Nice to see Leave No Trace and Game Night on there.  I will be in the minority by saying that the rest honestly didn't impress me much.  (I seem to have become quite the Cinema Curmudgeon.)

I can see that. 2018 wasn't a year for GREAT movies. Only feel very strongly about the top 3-4.

By contrast, looking at last year's list, I would be comfortable calling 1 through 9 masterpieces.
