Films of 2017 seen in 2017

2017 release means either wide UK release, released on Neflix in 2017, or I saw at a film festival in 2017.

Compiling this list of 2017 films has been an interesting task. There are usually a couple of films which miss the previous year's deadline due to UK release dates, but it's not often that so many of them make my 'best of' list. This year, some of my favourite films on this list may seem like old hat because they came and went with the Academy Awards earlier this year, having qualified with their 2016 US release dates. But they didn't get UK release until 2017, so that's why you'll see them here.
