Vulture's Best Movies of 2019 (So Far)
We're nearing the end of another year, which means movie season is finally kicking into gear. Sure, the first several months of 2019 gave us some gems: a politicized zombie slasher (Us), a Swedish vacation turned living nightmare (Midsommar), the return of Quentin Tarantino (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood), an Obama-produced Netflix doc (American Factory), Brad Pitt in space (Ad Astra). But October was when the cinema truly arrived. After many of the movies we'll be feting come Oscars season rolled out at film festivals in Europe and North America in August and September, the first round of those films actually started hitting theaters in the U.S. And there's still a lot to come. So with that in mind, here are the best movies of the year that Vulture has reviewed, according to David Edelstein, Emily Yoshida, Bilge Ebiri, Angelica Jade Bastién, and Alison Willmore.
