This year I had the honor of having my top ten list posted on RogerEbert.com. It’s always been on my freelance bucket list to contribute to RogerEbert.com as I’ve always considered the website and its contributors to be top-notch.
The Banshees of Inisherin was named the Best Movie of 2022 after the votes were tallied.
If you’d like to see what the collective writers selected for the top 10, you can click here, otherwise, each of our individual top 10 can be found here. Below I’ve listed my top ten movies of 2022 and if you click on the titles, the links will send you to JustWatch.com where you can find where the movies are available. (Note: Some titles might not be available to stream yet).
My honorable mentions included: After Yang, Babylon, Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio, Inu-Oh, and The Woman King
I also contributed to the BOFCA (Boston Online Film Critics Association) awards this year. The Banshees of Inisherin won that group’s top honor as well. I’ve included how I planned to vote in other categories (outside of Best Movie) below:
