Film Junk’s Best of 2020 Lists


With all of our year in review podcasts now out of the way, here is one last post collecting our various top 10 lists for 2020. We also have a few additional members of the Film Junk crew giving us their thoughts on the year with some unique lists of their own. Overall it looks like Sound of Metal is our biggest consensus pick for 2020 but there are a few other overlaps as well (Dick Johnson is Dead would definitely be there if Frank included documentaries on his list). What were your 2020 highlights? Check out all of our individual top 10 lists below and see what you think.
