top 25 of 2017!

here is my top 25 of 2017 — i was originally going to do a top 10 like i did last year but there were so many great films this year that i didn't want to exclude them!

when ranking, i took the following into account:
- cinematic merit
- social/cultural/political impact
- personal preference

i still have to see Faces Places, Molly's Game, BPM, The Villainess, and probably way more

PS. i know alien: covenant doesn’t really need to be on here but i liked it so!! please just let me have this

There are no comedy films in this list released in the 1980s.
