Rob Goald's 2018 Top 10

Rob Goald’s 2018 Top 10

2018 was a year  that saw substantial changes  in the film business . It was a year in which Netflix became a major player, Marvel unleashed  a black super hero and Spike Lee a black Klansman.. It was a year documentaries (Monrovia, Indiana) did very well and  the story of Robin Hood was the universal flop of the year. I guess that in the age of TRUMP the poor stealing  from the rich does not resonate  with the youth of the 21st century.
