After a disappointing 2016, I felt this was a particularly rich year for films. I feel like all I did was watch movies, and I still have major blindspots (most notably The Florida Project and The Killing of a Sacred Deer).

1. Twin Peaks: The Return (David Lynch)
2. Endless Poetry (Alejandro Jodorowsky)
3. Antiporno (Sion Sono)
4. Nathan for You: Finding Frances (Nathan Fielder)
5. The Shape of Water (Guillermo del Toro)
6. Dawson City: Frozen Time (Bill Morrison)
7. Good Time (Josh & Benny Safdie)
8. The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) (Noah Baumbach)
9. Nocturama (Bertrand Bonello)
10. Song to Song (Terrence Malick)

11. All Those Sleepless Nights (Michal Marczak)
12. Columbus (Kogonada)
13. The Big Sick (Michael Showalter)
14. Lady Bird (Greta Gerwig)
15. Creepy (Kiyoshi Kurosawa)
16. Toni Erdmann (Maren Ade)
17. mother! (Darren Aronofsky)
18. A Cure for Wellness (Gore Verbinski)
19. Get Out (Jordan Peele)
20. Silence (Martin Scorsese)
21. Lucky (John Carroll Lynch)
22. The Trip to Spain (Michael Winterbottom)
23. Baby Driver (Edgar Wright)
24. The Ornithologist (João Pedro Rodrigues)

Mediocre: Blade Runner 2049 (Denis Villeneuve), The Disaster Artist (James Franco), i]Kong: Skull Island[/i] (Jordan Vogt-Roberts)

Execrable: The Emoji Movie (Anthony Leondis), Geostorm (Dean Devlin)

Best Non-Film Ephemera: Bus Photobombs The Weather Channel’s Stream of Georgia Dome’s Implosion, Camera falls from airplane and lands in pig pen—MUST WATCH END!!

Worst Non-Film Ephemera: I had so much to say about the bad things I saw that I wrote a lengthy article about them.

If the obvious auteur behind something intended initially for television wants to call his work a film, then that's all I need---not all that different from deciding to call your pages of prose a novel or novella.
