The 11 best movies of the year so far

We’re just a little over halfway through 2022 and what a movie year it’s been! From the Sundance Film Festival going all-virtual at the last minute in January to "Top Gun: Maverick" unexpectedly dominating the box office this spring, there have been no shortage of surprises.

Everything Everywhere All At Once"

It’s a wild, often unkind world, and this has been a difficult year for so many. "Everything Everywhere All At Once" is the perfect antidote — strange, surprising and joyful even in its moments of grief. And that’s why it’s the best movie of 2022 (so far).

After Yang

This humanistic sci-fi drama from acclaimed indie studio A24 generated major buzz at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. As FOX Digital film critic Caroline Siede writes, "‘Tone poem’ and ‘memory play’ are two of the most overused terms when it comes to indie arthouse films, yet it’s hard to think of better descriptors for writer/director Kogonada’s elegiac sci-fi family drama "After Yang."
