The Best of 2017

Another very top heavy year for films in 2017. There were handful of films I loved and which will find their way into my all time rankings, but not a whole lot of depth.

Going with the theme of the times, it was also a terrific year for female actors, directors, screenwriters and even cinematographers. I had some difficulty with Best Actor, after a quite clear winner.

For those interested, my full write up for all the awards is here.
