    Former U.S. President Barack Obama has named director Bong Joon-ho's film "Parasite" as one of his favorite movies of 2019.

    In a tweet on Sunday, Obama, who seems to see himself as a guardian of middlebrow culture in America amid the dumbing-down of the Trump era, shared his selection of the best movies this year.

    The 17 other films on the list include "American Factory," a documentary by the Obamas' own production company, Higher Ground Productions, Martin Scorsese's "The Irishman" and racing drama "Ford v Ferrari."

    He earlier also tweeted a list of the best books of the year.
