January 2018 Archives

Whenever I see a movie, and I typically see about 100 per year in cinemas, I make a note of it and jot down a "score" from 0 to 100 based on what I thought of the movie.

Based on that list, here are the top 15 movies of 2017 for me personally. I love how most of them will not be recognizable, and they don't include any big Hollywood films. These top fifteen, in no particular order, just were the most interesting/moving/profound/worthwhile/fun/deep/whatever:

  • I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO
  • PERSONAL SHOPPER
  • CITIZEN JANE
  • THE UNKNOWN GIRL
  • EX LIBRIS
  • I CALLED HIM MORGAN
  • LETTER FROM BAGHDAD
  • GET OUT
  • COLUMBUS
  • MARSHALL
  • MOLLY'S GAME
  • WORMWOOD
  • SLAVA (GLORY)
  • SOUL ON A STRING
  • THE DEATH OF KING LOUIS XIV
