2023 may go down as an all-time year in cinema. Not only was Barbenheimer a defining event in culture, it gave a pivotal boost to theaters and delivered with two incredible films. We may never see anything like it again (although, here’s to hoping we do). It was rich, rich year for foreign cinema with the likes of Past Lives, Anatomy of a Fall, The Zone of Interest, The Boy and the Heron, Perfect Days, The Taste of Things and many more. It was equally an elite year for animation with Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, Robot Dreams, Teenage Mutany Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem and the aforementioned The Boy and the Heron. We saw phonenal films from the likes of Nolan, Anderson, Scorsese, Glazer, Miyazaki, Fincher, Mann, Coppola, Haynes, Reichardt, Kore-eda, Lanthimos, and other great auteurs. If nothing else, as many years have great top-end films as well, it was the deepest year for cinema in quite some time. And it made for a memorable year that we will soon not forget.
