Not long after releasing a list of his favorite literary works from 2019, former president Barack Obama has posted a list of his favorite films from the past year to his Twitter as well as his Instagram, according to The Guardian. The list stokes the critical debate over television’s place in the cinematic conversation, for Obama includes three TV series he considers “as powerful as” the gritty dramas and awards season contenders comprising more than half the list. Obama first began publishing such lists in 2015, starting with books, and he aims to spotlight lesser-known artists alongside their higher-profile counterparts.
