11 Best Movies of 2017



I wrote about the 11 best movies of 2017 for The Playlist [HERE]

If you want to bypass the commentary and go straight to the list, here it is:

(1) "Get Out" (Jordan Peele)
(2) "Call Me By Your Name" (Luca Guadagnino) 
(3) "The Florida Project" (Sean Baker)
(4) "Columbus" (Kogonada) 
(5) "The Big Sick" (Michael Showalter)
(6) "Phantom Thread" (Paul Thomas Anderson)
(7) "The Disaster Artist" (James Franco)
(8) "Nocturama" (Bertrand Bonello, France)
(9) "Good Time" (Josh and Ben Safdie)
(10) "Wakefield" (Robin Swicord)
(11) "Faces Places" (Agnes Varda)

I could have easily made this a top 20. Know what? Here are ten other titles that shouldn’t be neglected: 

Personal Shopper (Olivier Assayas), A Ghost Story” (David Lowery),  Brawl in Cellblock 99” (S. Craig Zahler),  “Menashe” (Joshua Z Weinstein),  Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri,” (Martin McDonaugh), Baby Driver” (Edgar Wright), Ingrid Goes West (Matt Spicer) War for the Planet of the Apes” (Matt Reeves) Icarus” (Bryan Fogel), and Happy End“ (Michael Haneke), Colossal (Nacho Vigando)
