Matt St.Clair’s Top 10 Films Of 2017

Now that 2017 has come to a close, it is time to reflect on the best that the year in cinema had to offer. And it has been quite a year. 2017 was a rich year for diversity in terms of not just the stories being told, but also the people that have made them. Female directors like Greta Gerwig and Patty Jenkins broke critical and box office records. While Jordan Peele’s Get Out became the highest grossing debut film of all time based on an original screenplay. And the year’s most profitable film. Also, Tiffany Haddish emerged a breakout star in Girls Trip, the year’s most successful comedy.

Meanwhile, Christopher Nolan transported us to the harsh battlefields of Dunkirk. Blade Runner 2049 proved how blockbusters can be cinematic art. Logan reinvigorated the superhero genre with its Western elements. The record-breaking It proved that not all remakes are terrible. And lots more.

First off are some honorable mentions that just missed my list (in alphabetical order):
