The (Unofficial) Dissolve's Best Films of 2017

Since last year's list went like gangbusters, I was more than happy to do this again for 2017. This might be the only year-end list I put together; my wife and I had a baby this year, and my watchlist is massively out of control. (As it stands, my top 5 is probably Get Out, Personal Shopper, mother!, A Ghost Story, and Blade Runner 2049.)

Huge thanks to all the writers on here for their insights on the year in film and for giving us all something to distract us from this dumpster fire of a year. We'll get through this. Probably.
