I moved the true 2018 releases to their respective list, and it turns out that 2018 was such an amazing year that they staved off most of the 2019 releases. For now, though:

01. Parasite
02. Uncut Gems
03. The Lighthouse
04. Ad Astra
05. Once Upon a Time in... Hollywood
06. Marriage Story
07. Pain and Glory
08. The Irishman
09. The Souvenir
10. High Flying Bird

Decent: The Dead Don't Die, Joker, The Beach Bum

To see, based on U.S. release date through December: Synonyms, Atlantics, Little Joe, A Hidden Life, Portrait of a Lady on Fire, Little Women
