List: Top 5 Movies of 2021 (So Far)

This week on Episode 437 of the InSession Film Podcast, as we do every year at this time, we discussed our Top 5 movies of the year so far. It’s been an odd year as things begin to normalize more than last year, so it may not be the deepest year for film, but its had its fair share of gems. A few of them may even end up as contenders at the end of the year during our Awards Show. So, it was a lot of fun, and a bit challenging, figuring out our lists and where we stand at this point in the film year. That said, what would be your Top 5?
