Alice Field

10 – John Wick Chapter 2

Top 10 Movies of 2017

A showcase on how to deliver a sequel; no repetition, but a true expansion of the first film’s plot, the character and his world. And bloody exciting.

9 – The Florida Project

Top 10 films of 2017

The innocence and imagination of children contrast beautifully with the stark circumstances of their lives. All the cast were a revelation.

8 – The Lego Batman Movie

Top 10 Movies of 2017

Simply the best superhero film ever.

7 – The Forest of the Lost Souls

Top 10 movies of 2017

Very striking Portuguese black and white horror film about family and death. Stunning to look at and gripping to watch, too.

6 – Brigsby Bear

Top 10 Movies of 2017

Hamill did voices! Again, a joyful and colourful film, with original characters and completely unpredictable story.

5 – Blade Runner 2049

Top 10 movies of 2017

A perfect sequel; clearly made by someone who loved the original as much as we did. The visual style and the soundtrack both matched the original closer than we could have hoped.

4 – Hounds of Love

Top 10 Movies of 2017

Perfect acting and sublime filming; not to mention the aching commitment of a mother searching for her lost child.

3 – Baby Driver

top 10 movies of 2017

A joyful, musical heist and coming of age story; with a fairy tale ending (in the tradition of The Graduate). Loved it, and I play the soundtrack often.

2 – Three Billboard Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Top 10 Movies of 2017

Woody Harrelson made me cry. I never expected to say that. And I think I fell for Sam Rockwell a little.

1 – The Death of Stalin

Top 10 movies of 2017

I have immense respect for any writer that can have us laugh for most of the film and come close to throwing up for some of it. Nothing has had that effect until now since Man Bites Dog. Best historical satire since The Life of Brian.
