Little Women - Gerwig
Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga
Borat 2
Portrait of a Lady on Fire - Sciamma

Also Seen
Color Out of Space - Stanley
Happiest Season
i'm thinking of ending things
Palm Springs - Barbakow
Weathering with You (after this and Your Name, I've concluded Shinkai's films are not for me)

Definitely not making it to ten this year, but I found I appreciated comedies a lot more than usual given everything that went on.
