While there’s no cut-and-dry definition of the best film of the decade, some measures are better than others. For me, a decade-defining movie must be more than technically, critically or commercially successful. Many films from the 2010s met all of these criteria, all competent, some more memorable than others. After all, even the most holistic and unambiguous appreciation is no guarantee that the product will persist in our collective conscious for years to come.

Much of “The Report” revolves around the never-ending barriers to entry that exist within the government itself. With so many layers of authority, the truth and morality both become problematically subjective.

While “Charlie’s Angels” can and should be enjoyed by everyone — men and women alike — it is, first and foremost, a movie meant to empower women. This movie strengthens women’s beliefs in themselves and gives them the opportunity to find what makes them Angels.

It is rare to find a movie where everyone involved is on the top of their game.
