The 20 Best Movies of 2021


Welland just like thatanother year has gone by. 2021 pun berlalu.

Pandemi COVID-19 masih menghantui dan memberikan pengaruhnya pada kehidupan manusia. Meskipun begitu, tahun ini juga menandai mulai dibukanya kembali layar bioskop di lebih banyak tempat. Satu momen yang memberikan kesempatan pada penonton untuk menyaksikan lanjutan petualangan karakter agen rahasia ikonik James Bond lewat No Time to Die (Cary Joji Fukunaga, 2021), berkenalan dengan sosok pahlawan super baru dalam linimasa pengisahan Marvel Cinematic Universe di Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (Destin Daniel Cretton, 2021), merasakan kesan mendalam yang ditinggalkan Seperti Dendam, Rindu Harus Dibayar Tuntas (Edwin, 2021) dan Yuni (Kamila Andini, 2021) yang sebelumnya telah mendapatkan pujian dunia melalui perjalanan keduanya ke berbagai festival film, menjadi saksi megahnya pengisahan Dune (Denis Villeneuve, 2021), serta mengalami kembali momen riuhnya kebersamaan menikmati sajian presentasi layar lebar dalam film terbesar tahun ini, Spider-Man: No Way Home (Jon Watts, 2021).

Kehadiran kembali layar bioskop, tentu saja, menambah opsi tontonan bagi para penikmat film dunia yang masih dimanjakan oleh berbagai sajian cerita yang dihadirkan oleh berbagai saluran streaming. Pixar Animation Studios kembali merilis sajian terbaru mereka, Luca (Enrico Casarosa, 2021), melalui Disney+ Hotstar. AppleTV+ membuktikan eksistensinya dengan menghadirkan CODA (Sian Heder, 2021) dan The Tragedy of Macbeth (Joel Coen, 2021). Dan Netflix masih mampu membuktikan diri sebagai saluran streaming “jawara” lewat tawaran-tawaran seperti The Mitchells vs. the Machines (Michael Rianda, 2021), The Power of the Dog (Jane Campion, 2021), tick, tick… BOOM! (Lin-Manuel Miranda, 2021), hingga The Hand of God (Paolo Sorrentino, 2021).
