Barack Obama shared his favorite movies and TV shows of 2019 in an end-of-the-year list, which included “everything from explorations of class dynamics and relationships, to an inspired reboot of a classic graphic novel, to a portal back to one of the most special places in history — an Aretha Franklin concert.”

The former president posted the list on social media on Sunday, after posting his favorite books of the year the day before. He also published a list of his favorite songs of the year.

His favorite movies were the following:

  • American Factory (a film released by his production company, Higher Ground)
  • Amazing Grace
  • Apollo 11
  • Ash Is Purest White
  • Atlantics
  • Birds of Passage
  • Booksmart
  • Diane
  • The Farewell
  • Ford v Ferrari
  • The Irishman
  • Just Mercy
  • The Last Black Man in San Francisco
  • Little Women
  • Marriage Story
  • Parasite
  • The Souvenir
  • Transit

He listed three TV shows that he considered to be “as powerful as movies.” Those were Fleabag: Season 2, Unbelievable and Watchmen.
