Sight and Sound names ‘Roma' Best Film of 2018

Roma (2018)
I abide by Sight & Sound's newly unveiled list of the the best films of 2018. The annual film poll, unsurprisingly, came to the conclusion that Alfonso Cuaron's “Roma” was the best film of the year. The awards-season dominance of Cuaron's film has been unsurpassed, it has won the top prize with seven different critics groups thus far, including the prestigious New York Film Critics Circle and Los Angeles Film Critics Association.

Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Phantom Thread,” Lee Chang-dong’s “Burning,”  Paweł Pawlikowski’s “Cold War,” and Paul Schrader’s “First Reformed” rounded out the top five.  More than 160 critics, programmers, and academics participated in the poll, which was last year topped by Jordan Peele's "Get Out." The full results:

1. “Roma”
2. “Phantom Thread”
3. “Burning”
4. “Cold War”
5. “First Reformed”
6. “Leave No Trace”
7. “The Favourite”
= “You Were Never Really Here”
9. “Happy as Lazzaro”
= “Zama”
