March 2020 in Films

It feels like March was a month that just would not end. As is with many people, I haven’t left my house in several weeks (except for a few trips to the grocery store), so my movie watching increased quite a bit this month.

As always, after the cut you can see everything I watched, plus a few highlighted favorites.
