Associated Press Film Writers Lindsey Bahr and Jake Coyle have named their picks for the best movies of 2021. Bahr’s No. 1 film is Maggie Gyllenhaal’s Elena Ferrante adaptation “The Lost Daughter,” a Netflix release starring Olivia Colman. Coyle’s top choice is Joachim Trier’s Danish 30-something character study “The Worst Person in the World.” The critics also list among their favorites Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Licorice Pizza,” Joanna Hogg’s semi-autobiographical coming-of-age sequel “The Souvenir Part II,” Peter Jackson’s eight-hour Beatles documentary “Get Back,” Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi spectacle “Dune” and Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s intimate epic “Drive My Car.”
