Top 10 of 2017
In a smaller market like where I live, there are still quite a few films from 2017 that haven't yet opened here. Many of these films wait on award buzz so that their distribution and audience in a wider market will grow. Also, these smaller films want to gain an audience in January when the holiday blockbuster season has waned. Having said that, I recognize that there are films that have populated many Top 10 lists of my peers that I have yet to see. Here are just a few films getting a lot of attention that my eyeballs haven't spent time with yet:
- THE POST
- THE SHAPE OF WATER
- CALL ME BY YOUR NAME
- I, TONYA
- THE PHANTOM THREAD
Would any of these make my TOP 10 of the year? Hard to say. Sometimes these films are little more than Oscar bait but fail to be something truly compelling. Other times films like this certainly would have made my list. But based on what I *have* seen this year, I did compile a list of my 10 best--including some unique titles that may or may not have been on the lists of others. Following a trend I have seen, I present this list of my Top 10 films of 2017 in a series of photo stills. You can click on any image and it will take you directly to my review of that film.
My Top 10 films of 2017 (in no particular order):
Seek these films out. Many are available to stream on Amazon, Netflix, or Hulu now while a few of them may still be in theaters.
Here is to 2018 and more great films ahead.
