Best first time watches 2017

the best non-2017 movies I saw for the first time in 2017. personally, I like these kind of lists more than Best of the Year because they're all pretty much the same. These kind of lists are a way to discover things you might have missed or have never heard of. To me, the Best First Time Watches lists are what make Letterboxd so vital

the list is in reverse chronological order

a pattern emerges: any Tsui Hark film I see manages to be on the list

also, I loved Star Crystal so much I watched it twice in a year!
