Those of us following the live announcement of the Boston Society of Film Critics' 2022 award winners on Twitter were in for a surprise when they got to the Best Film category. Beating other top prize winners Tar, After Yang, The Banshees of Inisherin and Everything Everywhere All at Once was a movie that's kept a low profile so far this awards season: Davy Chou's Return to Seoul. Fellow Korean movie Decision to Leave was also among the winners, though so was Hindu Nationalist propaganda RRR, and I'm not inclined to give much credence to any critics' group's opinions if they aren't even capable of a little bit of healthy critical thinking. All the 2022 BSFC award winners below.
