My Favorite Movies of the 2010s

My favorite movies of the decade, the ones I think about the most. I watched a lot of movies —probably a few thousand—and I’m sure I’m forgetting plenty of stuff I loved. I left TWIN PEAKS: THE RETURN off because I don’t want to get into arguments about whether it’s a film or TV show, but it’s my favorite anything of the decade, century, whatever. I also limited myself to one from Paul Thomas Anderson in my top thirty-five, though he made three top ten masterpieces this decade.
