October at the Movies


Okay, we’re rapidly approaching the end of the year and my anxiety is going through the roof. Doing this list on a monthly basis was meant to make the whittling process far more manageable; but I’m pretty sure it has only made things worse. Call Me by Your Name has been promoted to top spot for now. Much like Land of Mine, each time I reminisce about the film, I’m overcome by a wave of emotion. Surely this must be a measure of fine storytelling.

October has been a huge month at the cinemas, with some genuine contenders for “film of the year” honors entering the race. I strongly suggest you catch Good Time, Killing of a Sacred Deer, Blade Runner 2049 and Brigsby Bear. You won’t be disappointed.

Please go back and check out my Top 10 lists as they’ve evolved throughout the year. It’s been an emotional journey.
