Of course DEATH OF STALIN made the cut.
Today, former President Barack Obama, in his now-annual tradition, has gone to his Facebook page to announce his favorite books, films and albums of the year. You can and should read the entire cast here, but we are most interested in Obama's selection of the best films of the year today.
Here they are:
- Black Panther
- The death of Stalin
- Eighth grade
- If Beale Street could speak [1
- Supporting the Girls
- Won't You Be My Neighbor
Obama offers no further comment on this list, which only serves to make the whole thing more interesting. Take a minute to consider why Annihilation might be on this list, or Eighth Grade or (ahem) Stalin's death . Take the fact that Obama is a fan of Support The Girls or that he probably sobbed as if we were not going to be my neighbor just like the rest of us , This is a fascinating thing to play a chair psychologist on.
What are you particularly surprised to see here? Anything you see shocked to see of ? Can you imagine that the current president literally saw these films from start to finish? Interpret the tea leaves and let us know what you think in the comments.
