For the third stage of our Cultural Advent Calendar 2022we spent 7 days sharing our best recommended movies of the year.

We’re nearing the finish line, with the next 10 days focusing on our ups and downs this year in culture, but in case you missed it, here’s a quick recap of our The best movies of 2022with helpful links to each review.

origin 1Worst person in the worldVerdens Verste Menneske © Oslo Pictures

Day 15: “Worst person in the world”

What we said: “The character’s lives are brought to the screen in a way that feels so specific yet extraordinarily universal. Everyone will relate to the story in one way or another, whether it’s the subtle nuances of relationships, the angst of adolescence or the complexities of everyday life and the ups and downs of self-discovery.

Day 16: “Hit the road”

What we said: “There were some outstanding films this year that I loved with little reservations: What do we see when we look at the sky, Decision to leave, You will not be alone… And there is Jaddeh Khaki (Hit the road), a movie I’ve seen three times and still can’t think of a single detail I would change or wish wasn’t there. It is, quite simply, a masterpiece.

origin 1The Banshees by Inisherin Searchlight Pictures

Day 17: “The Banshees of Inisherin”

What we said: “Every image, every line and every action communicates the language of isolation so beautifully. From the empty Irish landscape to Colm’s humorous patter and finally almost inexplicable self-mutilation, it all comes together for a fascinating portrait of different archetypes of isolation. What’s most impressive is the way writer-director Martin McDonagh’s screenplay weaves in the humor.”

origin 1Boiling point Release of vertigo

Day 18: “Boiling Point”

What we said: “No performance this year is more worthy of a great chef’s kiss than that of Stephen Graham. I truly believe he is one of the best actors of our time. The rest of the cast, including Vinette Robinson, Jason Flemyng, Ray Panthaki and Alice Feetham are also exceptionally compelling in their roles.”

origin 1Everything everywhere all at onceA24

Day 19: “Everything, everywhere and at once”

What we said: “While watching, I found myself hearing everything everywhere at once. Well, maybe not everywhere, because that sounds a little weird. But the sheer absurdity of it all inflamed my feelings; I would go from laughing hysterically at the thought of a Hot Dog Hands Universe, to gushing a split second later over a chef’s affair with a raccoon who sat under his hat and ran his kitchen by pulling his hair (Raccacoonie < 3).”

origin 1Bones and AllMGM

Day 20: “Bones and All”

What we said: “While cannibalism as an allegory of the outsider and the exploration of burgeoning sexuality through the prism of horror is hardly new ground, what sets Bones and all aside is that it can sometimes make your stomach churn, but it will definitely make your heart ache.

origin 1Triangle of sadness Fredrik Wenzel/Platform Production

Day 21: “Triangle of Sadness”

What we said:Reuben Ostlund it’s pretty much on top of the world for cinephiles. So it’s no surprise that Triangle of Sadness appears on RockedBuzz via Euronews Culture’s Best of 2022 list, you suppose. But I don’t think he deserves the awards he’s been given. (…) So why is it one of my films of the year, you ask? Because nothing prepared me for the hilarity of the jokes, the gross emetic scenes and the sheer excess of the approach.
