10 better Netflix “Originals” to watch instead of that horrid top 10:
-A SUN 🇹🇼
Of these 10, the ones I feel remain the most obscure and should be more widely seen are ALL IS WELL and MY HAPPY FAMILY, both directed or co-directed by women with women as protagonists.
.@BilgeEbiri wrote an incredible review of MY HAPPY FAMILY when it was first released villagevoice.com/2017/11/29/the…
And @GuyLodge wrote a great review of ALL IS WELL, which is how I first found out about the film: variety.com/2018/film/revi…

Film thread: In the 2010s Mexico produced a record number of movies. With that in mind, I’ve decided to highlight 150 Mexican films (yes, so many!) from the last decade that I think are good, great, or amazing - all worth a watch.
These are just my personal choices and in no way a definitive “best of” list. There are plenty more that I probably haven’t seen yet. For the purpose of this thread I focused on films about Mexico also mostly made by Mexican directors.
That’s why some works by Tatiana Huezo, Rodrigo Plá, or Iñárritu are not listed here even if they are Mexican productions. I also included some films made about Mexico by filmmakers who are not Mexican.

This thread highlights 135 international animated features from the 2010s (I know that’s a lot!). Animation is never appreciated enough, so I decided to celebrate these great works before the decade is over. Nobody asked for this list, but here it is for those interested:
