Top 20 (+1) Movies of 2018!!

by steluppi | created - 6 months ago | updated - 6 days ago | Public

The "top 20 (+1)" of the films that most impressed me seen at the cinema during 2018; I include in it only movies distributed in Italy during 2018 and so films that, although beautiful, have not yet been projected in Italian cinemas are not included! The list is constantly updated and the titles are taken from my list "Movies I've watched in theaters 2018" excluding, obviously, the repropose of great classics returned to cinema as "Novecento" or "Last Tango in Paris ". The list tries to respect a sort of "order of preference".

Finally movies released in Italy in 2018 that, unfortunately, I have not yet managed to view: -The Incredibles 2 -Sicario: Day of the Soldado -A Quiet Place -Sulla mia pelle -Shoplifters
