Five Lists: #TopTenFilms2020


What with a broken ankle at the start of 2020 followed by a pandemic/lockdown/working from home, probably watched more films in 2020 than any other year.

Luckily, I started using letterboxd which certainly makes list compilation much simpler. There I logged 863 films, sadly only 12 seen in the cinema!
