Chaz Ebert's Top 10 Films of 2021

UPDATE: At the time I submitted my Top Ten List of films for 2021, I had not yet seen all of the films, and indeed I am still catching up. I made the decision to leave the original Top Ten list as is, and to make any additions only to my "Runners Up" list. 2021 proved to be a difficult year to see the films in a timely manner. Here's hoping that 2022 will be better. (Revised: 1/11/22).

The following list features Chaz Ebert's personal picks for the Top 10 Films of 2021...

1. "Passing"

2. "Summer of Soul (...Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised)"

3. "The Green Knight"

4. "The Harder They Fall"

5. "Titane"

6. "Annette"

7. "Parallel Mothers"

8. "The Worst Person in the World"

9. "The Power of the Dog"

10. "King Richard"

Runners-Up in Alphabetical Order: "A Hero," "After Yang," "Being The Riccardos," "C'mon C'mon," "Dear Evan Hansen," "Don't Look Up," "Drive My Car," "Julia,"  "Lamb," "Licorice Pizza," "Nightmare Alley," "Nine Days," "Red Rocket," "Respect," "Roadrunner," "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings," "Swan Song," "The Eyes of Tammy Faye,"  The Last Duel," "The Lost Daughter," "The Tender Bar," "The Tragedy of Macbeth," "Who We Are"
