100 films in 2017 - and my top 10

February 13, 2018

 

 

 

Okay yes, I know I'm late to the mandatory end-of-year "Films I Watched and Recommend" list. I watched a grand total of 100 films last year and probably more (not counting cuts of films in post-production like DEMONS and films I forgot to list down). This list doesn't mean these films were released in 2017, just that I watched them then and they truly stood out for me.

  1. 師父 The Final Master (Xu Haofeng; 2015; China
