It's a bit late, but what does everyone here think of the last decade in film-making?

I'm of the opinion that it was an alright though somewhat contradictory decade in film-making, where there was a number of interesting and important films alongside a number of mundane and average films (in a film industry dominated by superhero movies etc) and many films that attempted to grapple with serious topics but didn't quite properly reach the artistic or level of seriousness required to be considered saying something profound.

If I had to pick the best films from the last decade, some of the stand outs would be:

Best films: A Separation, Capernaum, Parasite, Peterloo, Snowden, Spotlight, Free State of Jones, Sami Blood, Sweet Country, In This Corner of the World

Good films: The Florida Project, Vice, The Big Short, Green Book, Isle of Dogs, Roman J. Israel Esq., Lincoln
(among many others)

TV: Chernobyl, Succession, Homecoming, House of Cards (first three seasons only)...

What do others think?

@San-Diego China is a huge overseas market in terms of ticket sales. Problem is, Chinese government has a quota on how many foreign films it allows to be shown in China. Thus, Hollywood studios keep what Chinese censors like in mind when making films.

Now recently, the option of doing a joint production with Chinese film studios has become a good looking option, since those types of films don't have to fight for the few slots normally allowed for foreign films. If you go this route, however, it usually winds up even more pro-china than the former option.

I have a question, why Western Movies nowadays is always putting China related things by pandering it to Chinese?

Big fan of Bergman, quite into Tarkovsky, eternally skeptical about and yet regularly convinced by Godard's output, intrigued by Japanese New Wave yet much faster at finding new names than actually watching the films, and kind of sleeping on modern Asian arthouse because I laze through directors I should explore thoroughly, but Kar-Wai is fine.

For Japanese NW and Asian arthouse in specific, check the club "Cinema of Japan" which has a specific focus on East Asian cinema. It's quite cool.

Any fan of Ingmar Bergman, Tarkovsky, French & Japanese New Wave or Asian arthouse (Wong Kar-Wai, Hou Hsiao-Hsien, Kore-eda, etc.)?

Personally, I'm not a fan of the Coen Brothers. I haven't seen all of their movies but of the ones I did see, "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" and "No Country for Old Men" are the only ones I actually liked - though I must admit that the second one really pissed me off during the first veiwing and only later I started to appreciate it.
If You're getting into Coen movies just now, I would recommend "Fargo" - widely considered one of their best movies and I think it's also one of the most accessible ones.
