These were my favorite films of 2023. As usual, they’re in alphabetical order because it is too hard to try to rank such different films against each other and I love them all.

“American Fiction”
“The Holdovers”
“Killers of the Flower Moon”
“Polite Society”
“Rye Lane”
“They Cloned Tyrone”

Copyright 2023 Heyday Films

Runners-Up: Carmen, The Color Purple, Dumb Money, Dungeons & Dragons, The Persian Version, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem, Theater Camp, Wish, Wonka

Best documentaries:

American Symphony, Still: A Michael J. Fox Movie

And the most disappointing:

Mafia Mamma
FOE and Creator both set in the year 2065, both about AI, both with outstanding actors, both very disappointing
