Film 2022

The Banshees of Inisherin

by Joanna Orland

I’m still living life 2020 style when it comes to cinema outings. But with all of the streaming content, I can just about keep up with some of the wonders the film industry has to offer. Albeit sometimes a bit behind schedule, so consider the release dates of some of these for streaming in Canada.

From my most enjoyed to my least:

The Banshees of Inisherin – A Martin McDonagh film starring Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson was pretty much a guarantee for my #1 spot. It lived up to expectation and even the hype. Phew!

RRR – My only regret is that I did not see this in a cinema. It would have blown my mind. This was so epic. A new all-timer for me!

Everything Everywhere All At Once – I loved it, but could’ve just as easily watched a feature length film about Raccacoonie!

Nightmare Alley

Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris – This was tailor-made for me (pun intended?)

Top Gun Maverick – That’s a movie!

The Nest – I think this is from 2020 but finally got it on Crave here in Canada.


Turning Red

West Side Story

Triangle of Sadness – I sort of get the hype, but also if I can’t watch over 20 minutes of a movie due to motion sickness, then maybe it’s not for me.
