TOP 20 OF 2020, THE LEAST EROTIC YEAR FOR MODERN CINEMA

saw 59 new releases this year*! liked about 20 of them! loved about 0! they don't make erotic arthouse dramas like they used to!

should go without saying that the order is heavily influenced by my personal preference -- I'm Thinking of Ending Things is #1 because i'm genetically modified to enjoy any movie with a monologue about gena rowlands and john cassavetes. i say modified and not predisposed because both my parents called it "the worst movie ever!"

*chose to include all oscar-eligible movies (released before 2/28/21) for my list. also, i still need to watch:
- Babyteeth
- Wolfwalkers
- Miss Juneteenth
- Time
- And Then We Danced
- I'm Your Woman
- Lingua Franca
- One Night In Miami
- the last 50 minutes of Mank (yeah right)
- whatever it is you're scanning for because you're mad i accidentally or intentionally omitted it
