Ard's Dozen Of Musings About 2017

This is the fourth time I'm doing a "musings" article (after 2014, 2015 and 2016) and... well, I really like this format. rather than doing a strict top-10, this allows me to speak about anything, really... as long as it's film-related.

And boy, was 2017 a weird year. Outside of films, politics got scary in (or for) many countries, and following the news was a depressing affair. At the same time personal fortune hit my family, with both me and my wife moving on to better jobs, while nobody got into any serious medical crises. If we have a guardian angel I hope we haven't worked it to death...

And inside of films? James Marsh' excellent round-up of all our personal favorites here at Screen Anarchy was published earlier this week, and looking behind the scenes at all the Top-10 lists I was, as always, dismayed at all the titles I wanted to have seen at this point but hadn't somehow found the time for. I can't believe I still have to catch mother! and Dunkirk. Grrrr.

I didn't miss everything though, so this is my list of films and events which struck me in 2017. Browse through them (they're in no particular order...), and feel free to discuss!
