Watch: David Ehrlich's 'The 25 Best Films of 2017' Video Countdown
It's here! Time to start figuring out which films are the best of the year, so get watching. One of the annual must-see best of the year lists is actually a video countdown made by my colleague David Ehrlich (follow him @davidehrlich). He counts down his 25 best films of the year in a video edited together with footage and music from each of the films. This is such an entertaining way to count down the best cinema of 2017, and it always makes me want to watch each one of these (even the ones I've seen already). Ehrlich pretty much nailed it this year - Call Me By Your Name is my #1 as well, and his Top 10 is almost perfect. Dive in.
Embedded directly from Vimeo. Description: "A video countdown of the best films of 2017." Created by film critic/writer David Ehrlich (follow him on Twitter @davidehrlich). His list of best films are referenced directly in the video, you can read more thoughts on Indiewire. The music used throughout includes: "The Rhythm of the Night" by Corona, the eternal Rick Roll, "Never Gonna Give You Up" by Rick Astley, plus all of the wonderful Sufjan Stevens' songs from the Call Me By Your Name soundtrack. You can find links to the previous years in the Vimeo page. I highly recommend watching any+all of the films mentioned in this.

Nice video and list, but I can't judge since I only saw one film on this list all year. Yikes. There are definitely a few I know I wanted to watch and just didn't get to the theater to see, especially Baby Driver, Get Out, and Ghost Story. Others I want to see are Lady Bird, Columbus, the Florida Project and the Big Sick. The rest don't really interest me much.

Didn't have the time to watch allot of movies this year. But the ones I've seen where nice but not excellent(John wick, get out, Spiderman, wonderwoman) The best thing i seen is the tv show the Handmaid's Tale. It's excellent, creepy and very well written...
