The top 25 films of 2017 

Nothing makes me want to quit my job and just watch movies all day than David Ehrlich’s annual video countdowns of the year’s best movies.

I’m with Jason. Erlich’s video is a work of art in its own right. I am super-out of touch with the film world,1 but I am still embarrassed to have only heard of 5½ of the 25. I have seen precisely zero of them.2


  1. I think this means serious movies. Ones involving auteurs, probably. 

  2. I’ve seen six movies this year, I think. All were either superhero or kids’ movies. The former watched while traveling, and the latter (appropriately) with my children.
