If anyone says that 2021 wasn’t a good year in terms of cinema, then that person has definitely not seen films of that year. Because 2021 was a year full of indescribable cinematic talents from remarkable performance, directions and cinematography. Here are my 10 favourite films of 2021 (Ranked)

10. ANNETTE Leos Carax’s intense musical starring remarkable actors Marion Cotillard and Adam Driver with music by Sparks.
9. BENEDETTA Probably the most controversial film of 2021, Paul Verhoeven has great fun with this one while putting commentary on religion, blasphemy, corruption.
8. CODA 2021’s Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner is a truly moving film about a teenage child in a deaf family with a breakout performance by Emilia Jones.
7. THE POWER OF THE DOG With Jane Campion you expect the most extraordinary work and she delivers. She is a master filmmaker at height of her career.
6. THE LOST DAUGHTER Maggie Gylenhall’s directorial debut is a bold, brilliant take on motherhood from an adaptation of Elena Ferrante’s novel. A remarkable film with stunning performances from an ensemble.
5. BERGMAN ISLAND Mia Hansen Love’s Cannes competition entry is a really interesting film about films itself. Mia Hansen Love is one of the most interesting contemporary French filmmakers working today.
4. SPENCER Pablo Larrain’s Princess Diana biopic with a sensational performance by Kristen Stewart is a masterpiece in my opinion. Every single aspect is perfect from start to finish, from score to costumes to direction to performance.
3. DRIVE MY CAR Japanese Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s film is truly the most beautiful slow burning film over 3 hrs which I would have been equally happier if it would have more longer because of its beauty.
2. TITANE Cannes Palm D’Or winner is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. Julia Ducorneau’s film is most violent yet moving, gender is incredibly fluid so is the morality. I’m still in awe of how she can shake you and make you laugh and then make you cry at the same time.
1. THE WORST PERSON IN THE WORLD Norwegian director Joachim Trier’s film about four years in the life of a woman in contemporary Oslo in search of herself is the best film I’ve seen this year. Renate Reinsve’s incredible performance is matched with remarkable direction and screenplay. A breathtakingly stunning piece of art.
