Movies like Tears could still inspire It was a good 12 months to be a movie alnivore. We expanded the list to 22 movies this year — so 2022! Yes, we are indeed shameless! – but even then there were a number of unusual films that continued to intrude on the idea of ​​a “best” line. The movies are not dead. They are not even the past.
