The Best Films of 1989

1. Do The Right Thing
2. Near Death
3. Drugstore Cowboy
4. sex, lies, and videotape
5. Crimes and Misdemeanors
6. Chameleon Street
7. Letters from a Dead Man
8. Born on the Fourth of July
9. High Hopes
10. Roger & Me
11. Elephant

The 80s as a whole are my least favorite decade for cinema of the 20th century, besides the 1900s and 1910s when most filmmakers were still figuring out the medium, but 1989 is a real exception to that and one of my all-time favorite years. My top 5 this year are all canonical greats for me.
