The 50 Greatest Movie Moments of 2020

Every year, the /Film team gathers to do what all websites must: make a big list about the previous year in cinema.

So compiling a list of the 50 Greatest Movie Moments of 2020 was hard not because there weren’t any great moments, but because there were so many. Here are our favorite moments – shots, scenes, lines of dialogue, gags...

The Midnight Sky Featurette The Midnight Sky was a labor of love, especially from director-star Clooney, who overcame his aversion to the cold to shoot one of the most physi...
