Welcome to our first episode reocrded in 2020! Award season is in full swing, and CinemaJaw is pouring back over what was a banner year in film. This week, we break down what were the best performances of 2019 (both male and female) and there were a bevy!

Joining us is none other than, fellow Chicago based film critic from, David J. Fowlie! In between writing reviews, he’s also slaving away at the drawing table, working on (and wrestling with) on-going illustration projects. Check out his reviews, interviews, art and general musings on his Twitter.

Hope those resolutions are holding strong! Welcome to another (hopefully) great year in film. Happy New Year!
