This is all fiction

Best Films Of 2022

I probably shouldn’t start the year by thinking about the things I didn’t manage to do in 2022, but logging on to this blog makes it impossible for me to ignore that the film reviews I’d hoped to write never quite materialised. Never mind — the time that could have been spent on updating this site was instead devoted to making progress with the novel. Having said that, I would like to resume some form of film-related (and non-film-related) blogging in 2023, but while I consider what this might look like, here’s my list of the best films of 2022, presented in the order in which the movies were seen.

Best films of 2022, selected by award-winning writer Dariush Alavi

Licorice Pizza (dir. Paul Thomas Anderson)
Parallel Mothers (dir. Pedro Almodovar)
Flee (dir. Jonas Poher Rasmussen)
There Is No Evil (dir. Mohammad Rasoulof)
Happening (dir. Audrey Diwan)
Benediction (dir. Terence Davies)
The Quiet Girl (dir. Colm Bairead)
