One of our favorite cinema-related treats as we head into a month of compiling the best of 2017 in a variety of categories is a yearly video countdown from David Ehrlich. The IndieWire Senior Film Critic’s selection of 25 of his favorites is always an eclectic bunch, ranging from blockbusters to acclaimed arthouse features to a handful of movies that deserve a boost in this year-end conversation.
As was the case in previous years, it’s a moving, impeccably edited, and wildly entertaining celebration of the best cinema had to offer in 2017. With a good amount of the films currently available to stream, there’s something to discover for everyone. We won’t spoil any of the selections here — however, if you want to skip out on any footage from a highly-anticipated movie arriving on Christmas Day, be ready to skip over about 20 seconds starting at 7:53.
Featuring a number of the year’s music cues juxtaposed with unexpected but perfectly fitting films, check out the countdown below:
