Five Hundred Cine TOP TEN of 2022: 2 choices of film critics

2 Film Critics were recently asked to rank their top 10 movies of 2022 (so far… a few to go!) and now we’re sharing that list with you.

Like many moviegoers, we deplore the lack of people in theater seats, the relative shortage of good films, and the prospect of seeing even fewer of them. But let’s celebrate what we have.

Getting down to business, the list below is our top 10 “2022” movies we’ve reviewed, in order (with difficulty, being TWO movie critics). After the list are thumbnail sketches from our reviews, and after that are “No” photos, “Top Gun: Maverick” and “The Fabelmans” weren’t on our list, despite each receiving a respectable 3 stars (out of 4), just like the last 3 here.

“departure decision” ★★★1/2

“The Banshees of Inisherin” ★★★1/2

“Everything, everywhere, all at once” ★★★1/2

“Funny Pages” ★★★1/2

” Event “ ★★★1/2

” Tar “ ★★★1/2

” Living “ ★★★1/2

” A hero “ ★★★

“At our peak” ★★★

“Kimi” ★★★

‘Decision to Leave’: Morally challenged Hae-jun (Park Hae-il) (left) can’t resist Seo-rae (Tang Wei), whose role echoes calculating femme fatale and composure .

1. “Decision to leave” top of our list, surprisingly even for us. Maybe we’re drawn to good old detective and filmmaking. We said of this South Korean gem: “There’s a lot to love about this breathtaking, thought-provoking, sometimes inexplicable, evocatively filmed and edited story of a love that struggles to ‘conquer all’, especially if you can track cell phones. .”

2. “The Banshees of Inisherin” fuels our Irish black comedy itch (even though one of us asked, “where’s the comedy?”). “Beneath the charming, comfortable and cinematically stunning surface – the majestic beauty of the Aran Islands eclipses human existence – Inisherin is a dysfunctional and confined place, Irish playwright/director Martin McDonagh’s vehicle for exploring what it means to want more the life he seems able to provide.

In “The Banshees of Inisherin,” Colm’s (Brendan Gleeson) outright rejection of Pádraic (Colin Farrell) will have consequences.
From “Everything Everywhere All At Once”: Facing the IRS audit of their business, the Wang family, left to right, Joy (Stephanie Hsu), Waymond (Ke Huy Quan), Evelyn (Michelle Yeoh) and Grandpa Gong Gong (James Hong) . What you barely see in this photo is the listener – a superb performance by Jamie Lee Curtis.
