Leaving myself open for "that was last year"  award season films are always staggered releases anyway but then with corona official release dates are all over the place

Judas and the black messiah for me, brilliant film, the father a close 2nd then a big gap to everything else 

Special mentions to concrete cowboy, luca, palm springs

Feels like I've watched a lot of decent but not great 7/10 films this year

I tend to just go by (full) UK release on IMDB. Sound of Metal for instance shows as a 2019 movie, but didn't get a proper UK release until 2021.

I had a quick look at the father on wiki, said a June 2021 release, I'm guessing that's the delayed cinema release due to rona, I'd watched it way before then

Its hard in a normal year anyway with the US / UK dates being different

Going on my quick spreadsheet marks out of 10 results it appears my simplistic top 12 ( scores tied on 7.5 ) were

  • Sound of Metal
  • Nomadland
  • A Quiet Place part 2
  • Tick Tick Boom!
  • The White Tiger
  • Another Round
  • The Courier
  • Free Guy
  • Spencer
  • Dune
  • Palm Springs
  • The Dig

However, there were a few solid efforts below that, Cop Shop, Bond and Many Saints of Newark. A Celine Sciamma film doesn't even make this list though :o  I was a bit underwhelmed by Petite Maman sadly.
