Take Two’s Best Movies Of 2022: What Is The Film That Had One Critic Ready To Walk Out And The Other Putting It In His Top 5?

Note: Deadline presents the 46th episode of its video series Take Two, in which Pete Hammond and Todd McCarthy tackle the artistry of films just opening in theaters every weekend. Each has reviewed and written about the craft for decades and built a remarkable breadth of knowledge of films past and present. What we hoped for when we asked them to do this was a concise, mature and thoughtful conversation comparable to what we saw from Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel.

For this final week of 2022 Take Two zeroes in on Hammond and McCarthy’s individual takes on their top five movies of the year, a deeper video dive into those movies that made the cut for each of them, and including only one film that made both lists. There is also a fierce argument over a certain major award winning film that one of them has in his Top 5 and the other couldn’t stand, in fact wanting to walk out on? Earlier in the week both critics posted their annual 10 best list (and then some) on Deadline, and now here is the final word – with pictures – on what they view are the best of 2022. Happy New Year.
