Peter Sciretta’s Top 10 Movies of 2017

peter top 10 movies

These are not the 10 best films released in 2017 – this list is of my 10 favorites. I saw close to 150 films last year, so narrowing down my top 7% is not easy. There are a lot of great films that didn’t make the cut, and I could list off a paragraph of films as honorable mentions, but I feel like that would be of disservice to this list.

No, you won’t agree with my choices. Some of the films listed here don’t appear on top 10 lists from other critics or even other /Film writers. I haven’t seen my number one film on any lists at all. But that’s the point, right? My list is my subjective opinion! There would be no reason to read this list if it was just a reflection of your opinion. I hope that this list will make you reconsider some of these movies and I hope that it will make you seek out the films you haven’t seen.
