Anne Thompson’s Top 12 Films of 2017, Including Five Directed By Women
There's hope for Hollywood yet, as this year's top 10 list extends to a top 12.
Track my film passions of the past year and the result is this list. These are the films that wowed and moved me, that turned me into a rabid champion, that gave me hope that brilliant cinematic storytelling — and a rebel spirit — is alive and well. It turned out to be a strong year for women directors (five), romances (three), World War II dramas (two), Angelina Jolie movies (two), animation (one), and documentaries (one).
