Col Needham's Hidden Gem Movies of 2018

by Col Needham | last updated - 2 weeks ago

I am the Founder and CEO of IMDb. I already shared my Best Movies of 2018 list. This is a list in alphabetical order of ten 2018 titles which I feel have not yet received the recognition they deserve in one way or another. Many titles are yet to be widely released so there is still plenty of time.

All of these are worth seeing IMHO, although, as I am fond of saying, "Differences of opinions about movies make the world go around."
