At the end of every year, IndieWire gathers together film critics from around the world and invites them to pick the best movies and performances of the last 12 months. This 2019 IndieWire Critics Poll included 304 movie critics, making it the largest year-end survey in the site’s history. IndieWire published the full critics poll earlier this week, but now we’re giving readers a bigger look at the Best Film category. The top 20 movies have already been revealed, but the full list below includes the 50 movies from 2019 that earned the most votes from film critics, ranked from the most voted to least voted.
Outside of this year’s Best Film race, IW Critics Poll winners included “Parasite” filmmaker Bong Joon Ho for Best Director and Best Screenplay, “Us” favorite Lupita Nyong’o for Best Actress, “Marriage Story” favorite Adam Driver for Best Actor, and more.
