With the 2019 Sundance Film Festival now behind us, it’s time to take a look at the best movies we saw at this year’s festival. Of course, with a festival as large as Sundance and with only three critics (and Perri Nemiroff’s time divided into also doing a bunch of interviews), you can’t get to everything, and there were some acclaimed films we missed like Clemency, Honeyland, and Cold Case Hammarskjöld. But between Matt Goldberg, Adam Chitwood, and Perri Nemiroff, we saw quite a few movies, and what’s more, most of those movies were good! This was a successful Sundance with a strong lineup of films, and so it was a bit of a challenge narrowing down our list to just the ten best.
Below you can see our ten favorite films of this year’s Sundance Film Festival and excerpts from our reviews.
