2017 Movies To Watch

Even though I watched a ton of films in theaters, I managed to miss some major ones. I didn’t do a great job of tracking what premiered on video this year, although as someone rightly pointed out, nobody cares about this but me. And I’ve yet to explore the hundreds of year-end lists from all the critics and publications, so I’ll have more titles to add, but I’ll just put ’em on my master list and leave this post alone.

On the Beach at Night Alone (Hong Sang-soo)
The Trip to Spain (Michael Winterbottom)
Brawl in Cell Block 99 (S. Craig Zahler)
Blade of the Immortal (Takashi Miike)

The Disaster Artist (James Franco)
Jackie and Neruda (Pablo LarraĆ­n)
The Breadwinner (Nora Twomey)
Lady Macbeth (William Oldroyd)
The Salesman (Asghar Farhadi)

Some 2017 movies for you will be 2018 movies for me, because I live in Nebraska… still looking forward to Phantom Thread, Call Me By Your Name, Faces Places, The Square, I Tonya, The Shape of Water, The Post, probably others.
