TOP 50 of 2019 (#50 – #26) – Kevin Rakestraw

Here are what I consider to be the Top 50 films of 2019, out of those that I was able to see. Obviously, there are some films that I was unable to view before year’s end that would have, no doubt, ended up on this list but those omissions are out of my control (not entirely). Certain titles found within contain links that will transport you to places in which you can view them yourself. I hope you enjoy and find some things that you might not have heard of before today.
