Derek’s Top 10 Films of 2017

February 11, 2018


To begin, I watched 38 of the films that 2017 had to offer. Yeah, I missed several that I really wanted to see like The Post, Phantom Thread, Wonderstruck, I, Tonya, The Disaster Artist, Darkest Hour, The Florida Project, Detroit, Lucky, Molly’s Game, Hostiles, Call Me by Your Name, Personal Shopper, All These Sleepless Nights, and The Founder, but overall I think I caught a good cross-section of 2017. If you want to see how I ranked every single film of 2017 that I saw, check out my letterboxd list at I will be using letterboxd to keep track of everything I watch in 2018 (as well as to make film lists of whatever may feel relevant at the time, like perhaps ranking all of the Marvel films after a new one is released…), so if you want to follow that journey this year, I would love to have you join me. What follows in this post are the best of the bunch of the 2017 films. Please let me know what you thought of what you watched. Do you agree with my list and thoughts? Do you disagree? Do you think I’m crazy? (Okay, the answer to that question is pretty obvious, but thanks for reading anyways) What do you think? Let me know and enjoy the reading!
