Over the past several weeks, we’ve spilled plenty of digital ink in pursuit of highlighting the wide array of great movies we watched in 2021. From listing the Best Action Movies of 2021 to exploring the year in Non-Binary representation to highlighting the Best Documentaries of 2021, our year in review has been a labor of pure love for cinema.
And as we round out the last few entries in our 2021 Rewind series, we’d like to take this opportunity to present the individual Top Ten lists of our group of contributors. This incredible group of writers spent the entire year diligently hunting down the best movies wherever they could be found — at festivals, on streaming apps, and even a few times in real movie theaters. The sum of this team’s efforts can be found in the 50 Best Movies of 2021 list we published last week, but this is all about each individual’s most important contribution — their own personal list. Through these selections, you can see the wide variety of films we absolutely loved last year — if you count our Chief Critic Rob Hunter’s list (which we do), our contributors submitted 12 different lists and only two had the same film at number one.
