Binge-Worthy Not So Well-Known Films of 2018

With Sundance 2019 just around the corner and to help get into the spirit of things, here are my picks. There are so many movies that go unnoticed each year. In my opinion, release timing and marketing/promotion are everything. If both don’t sync up, then, poof, unnoticed and underrated. Some of these premiered at film fests in 2016/2017 yet saw releases in 2018. Behold the 2018 list of binge-worthy not so well-known movies of 2018. Some will make you smile, some will scare the shit of out of you, make your heart hurt and others will leave you seriously moved.

Watch a few or grab the novels they were based off, it certainly leaves you with lots of options to keep busy until the new season of Game of Thrones or True Detective comes out on HBO.
