Madeleine’s Official Top Seventeen List™

Coinciding with the release of the 2018 Oscar nominations, I thought I would weigh in with my favorite 17 movies of 2017. With my top films of the year, I chose them based on three things:

  1. How much I enjoyed them and/or how much they stuck with me.
  2. How “good” of a film they were, in terms of their craft.
  3. Cultural significance and relevance.
