Stu's favourite films for 2018

Only 115 trips to the cinema this year, so sadly a few things have slipped through the cracks. These choices really have nothing to say about the quality of the art, they’re merely the ones which haunted me the longest well after seeing them. For those films that straddle 2017/2018 I tend to not include them, as they’ve been caught by 2017 best of lists. Overall, it was a pretty solid year at the movies. With great trepidation here are my favourites, honourable mentions and least favourite of 2018. - Stu  My favourites: 1. The Rider 2. American Animals 3. Isle of Dogs 4. Shoplifters 5. The Favourite 6. Widows 7. Mandy 8. The Ballad of Buster Scruggs 9. First Man 10. The Old Man & the Gun Honourable mentions: Eighth Grade You Were Never Really Here Can You Ever Forgive Me? Last Flag Flying Upgrade The Death of Stalin Loveless Searching Mission: Impossible Fallout Avengers: Infinity War My least favourite: 1. Robin Hood 2. Super Troopers
