Looking back at 2017 in film, it's clear that we've had a more divisive year than most. Reviews, as a whole, have been more split than ever before on many of the big movies, and there have been films-such as A Ghost Story, Dunkirk, and The Last Jedi-that were absolutely loved by some members of our staff, while loathed by others. While there haven't been as many universally loved movies this year as in year's past, there were movies that our writers were passionate about, and things that have appealed to each one's individual tastes.

Over in our list section, you'll find Under the Radar's Top 25 films of 2017, as voted on by our film staff. The biggest downside to year-end lists is that they need to be compiled before the year's actually ended. With the film release calendar so back-loaded with Awards season contenders, it's an especially big issue for movie lists. And thus, there are many great 2017 films (Phantom Thread, The Disaster Artist, and more) that are probably underrepresented on this list, simply because not all of our staffers have had the chance to see them yet.
