Top 10 Films of the 2010s

The past decade has brought a whirlwind of trends and big blockbuster magic as well as some indie gems. From the domination of franchises like Marvel’s Avengers and the return of the Star Wars franchise, cinema has become bigger than before. I thought it would be nice to look at my personal highlights from the last ten years and explore which films have stayed with me.

This wasn’t easy by any means as I knew the films had to be ones that truly impacted me on viewing and ones that felt rewarding on multiple watches. After much deliberation and thinking (trust me, many brilliant films were cut), I have managed to accumulate 10 films that I think sum up my film tastes for the past decade.

Here are my top 10 in chronological order:

Frances Ha (2012)

Beasts of the Southern Wild (2012)

The Master (2012)

The Tale of the Princess Kaguya (2013)

Mustang (2015)

Carol (2015)

Moonlight (2016)

The Shape of Water (2017)

mother! (2017)

Midsommar (2019)
