Christopher Llewellyn Reed’s Top 10 Films of 2018

Whereas last year I only listed fiction films among my Top 10 for this site, this year I have split my choices evenly between documentaries and narratives, picking 5 of each from my Top 10 in those respective categories. If you want to see a longer, more inclusive list, please head on over to my blog, where you will see all of the many movies that gave me more than a mere modicum of viewing pleasure. It was, indeed, a great year for cinema, and I am happy to celebrate the enormous variety of offerings for all to see.

Here, then, in alphabetical order, is my 2018 Film Festival Today Top 10. Since I have previously reviewed all of these, I hyperlink the titles to those reviews (whether on this site or on Hammer to Nail, where I also write). Enjoy!
