Ranked! Mandatory Top 10 of 2020: Indie Movies of the Year

COVID-19 leveled the movie playing field this year; dismantling theatrical release schedules and pushing back hotly-anticipated blockbusters. With cinemas closed for the better part of 2020, independent films presented themselves as saviors of the streaming void. For once, films outside the system are leading the entertainment industry in the dark. Whether it be during their limited releases or VOD, without your typical blockbusters, there’s no denying smaller films as the best of the year (not that indies aren’t always superior). Here are the Mandatory Top 10 of 2020: Indie Movies of the Year.
