Best and Worst Movies of 2018

Best movies of 2018


And so, an­oth­er year is gone. I am hap­py to say that this was quite an ex­cel­lent year for me in terms of new projects, op­por­tu­ni­ties and ex­pe­ri­ences. Un­for­tu­nate­ly, I didn’t have that much time to write more about films as I had planned to, which is some­thing that I wish to change in 2019. In any case, I leave here my tra­di­tion­al list of best and worst films re­leased world­wide (or al­most) in cin­e­mas and stream­ing web­sites in 2018 — which means I’m also in­clud­ing films from 2017 that were re­leased in 2018 for the rest of the world. And be­low, as usu­al, I leave my com­plete list with all films I watched this year. This time, for the first time, I’m in­clud­ing all short films as well.

Here it goes:


BEST MOVIES RELEASED WORLDWIDE IN 2018 (in or­der of pref­er­ence):

  1. The House That Jack Built (Denmark/France/Germany/Sweden, 2018)
  2. Ca­per­naum (Lebanon/USA, 2018)
  3. Shoplifters (Japan, 2018)
  4. Burn­ing (South Ko­rea, 2018)
  5. Roma (Mexico/USA, 2018)

  10. Lady Bird (USA, 2017)

Note: The Brazil­ian films Ara­by (Arábia) and Hard Paint (Tin­ta Bru­ta) had a very lim­it­ed re­lease world­wide, so un­for­tu­nate­ly I didn’t in­clude them. Oth­er­wise, Ara­by would have been #10 and Hard Paint #4 in the list.
