If anyone tells you 2019 wasn’t a good one for cinema, then they’re watching the wrong movies. With all the hell raging around the world, it’s harder than ever to give us a proper escape into the movies. In fact, some of the best movies of the year didn’t even bother with trying to ignore the problems we’ve been facing, and instead used them to inform some of the most riveting, compelling, powerful and even heartfelt movies of the year. Many of them are even among the best of the decade, in my opinion. So without further adieu, let’s get into my own Top 10 Movies of 2019. Read More »
It was another great year for movies, where we were blessed by new classics from beloved auteurs and new works of genius from fresh faces. Where sophomore efforts turned out to be magnificent titles in their own right. And, perhaps most interesting of all, where multiple movies conveyed a similar, and timely, “eat the rich” motto. My name is Chris Evangelista, and I approve this message. These are the 10 best movies of 2019, according to me.

The Report is one of the best movies of 2019, and I urge you to seek it out – be it in theaters, or when the film hits Amazon Prime Video soon after. In honor of the film’s impending release, we’re debuting an exclusive cut from David Wingo‘s The Report soundtrack. The movie tells the true story of Senate staffer Daniel J. Jones (Adam Driver), who begins to look into the CIA’s Detention and Interrogation Program following 9/11. Listen to The Report soundtrack exclusive below.

I saw The Report more than half-a-year ago at Sundance, and yet the movie has lingered with me ever since. It’s a powerful political drama/thriller, and it features what might just be the best performance of Adam Driver‘s career. Driver has quickly risen to be an actor worth paying attention to, and his work in this year’s Marriage Story is phenomenal.
But his performance in The Report is even better. And he still has Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker on the way. In short, Adam Driver is having a good year. The Report tells the true story of an investigation into the CIA’s Detention and Interrogation Program following 9/11, and all the dark facts dredged up in the process. Watch the latest The Report trailer below.

Jones, who was put in charge of investigating the CIA’s Detention and Interrogation Program. That investigation resulted in Jones uncovering a deliberate cover-up intended to hide and obscure torture. Watch The Report trailer below.

We’ve officially hit the midpoint of 2019, and that means it’s time to take stock of the year’s best movies so far. This summer has been mostly unremarkable, with a few glimmers of greatness here and there, but thankfully, the rest of the year has offered some gems worth gushing about. Honestly though, most of the great movies this year, at least for my personal list, come courtesy of the 2019 Sundance Film Festival, and thankfully, they’ll be on the way to theaters soon enough.

(Welcome to The Soapbox, the space where we get loud, feisty, political, and opinionated about anything and everything. In this edition: Vice and The Report are among the first films to truly look back at the Bush years with a severe and critical eye..)
Adam McKay‘s Vice and Scott Z. Burns‘ Sundance film The Report both hold a microscope up to the actions of the Bush Administration, in very different ways. But both The Report and Vice arrive at the same conclusion: we’re doomed to repeat our mistakes, even after we’ve studied them. Read More »
