2017 Films I've Seen

Finalized 1/3/18.

I recorded a giant five hour two-part bonus episode of Directors Club with Jim Laczkowski on the films of 2017. You can listen to that here and here.

The Killing of a Sacred Deer is the only film I saw in 2017 that actually felt like it was addressing how it felt to exist in America in 2017 with family members who voted for Trump, even though I'd be shocked if it was in any way a specific reaction to Trump or the rise of the alt-right. Staying Vertical was brilliant. The rest are varying degrees of very good to awful. Not a great year, but remember that part in John Wick Chapter 2 where he jams a pencil through someone's gums?
