Favorite films of 2017

Recommended Posts

Would love it if anyone would share their list of favorites for 2017.  I'm too behind in this year's films to share my own list, but hopefully that will come with time.

Normally I'd post my list this week, but both Phantom Thread and The Post are opening this weekend, so I'm definitely waiting to see those, and I may wait until next week to see Call Me By Your Name as well.

As I now live in the UK, I'm going to have to adjust my end-of-year list-making to UK release dates. So, Lady Bird, Phantom Thread, Coco, and a number of others aren't being released here until February. In fact, I'll be able to watch Black Panther before I'll be able to see Lady Bird. There will likely be films released in the UK which aren't available in the US too, hence my Paddington 2 inclusion on my 2017 list.
