The Best Movies We Saw for the First Time This Year

I always do best movies I saw for the first time lists at the end of every month. Since some people like to do their own lists too (and because if I just did an entire post devoted to myself, it’d be narcissistic as fuck), I thought it would be fun to see what everyone here’s favorite movies we saw for the first time this past year.
