The year's standout movies featured cattle barons, chefs, composers, physicists and whistleblowers.

'' Anatomy of a Fall ''

A man is found dead in the snow outside his Alpine chalet. Did he jump from the attic window, or was he pushed by his wife?

The winner of the Palme d'Or, the top prize at Cannes Film Festival, Justine Triet's courtroom drama is both a gripping whodunnit and an unsparing examination of the sexual and professional rivalries within a marriage.

'' The Boy and the Heron ''

Hayao Miyazaki, a co-founder of Studio Ghibli, has said that this will be his final film - and what a swansong it is.

A cryptic, cosmic fairy tale about letting go of the past, '' The Boy and the Heron '' is comparable to several of Mr. Miyazaki's previous visionary masterpieces.

'' The Creator ''

One of the few recent science-fiction blockbusters not to be based on a superhero comic or film franchise, this impressively gritty war epic stars John David Washington as a soldier in the battle between humans and robots.

Artificial Intelligence is Hollywood's current favourite villain, as ''M3GAN'' and the latest '' Mission : Impossible '' instalment showed.
