Best Films Of 2017 By Sigridur Petursdottir

Icelandic film journalist and screenwriter Sigridur Petursdottir picks her favourite films of 2017. 

Three​ ​Billboards​ ​Outside​ ​Ebbing,​ ​Missouri​ – Martin McDonagh

Frances McDormand has been one of my favourite actresses for a long time. In this movie, she gives it her all. Mildred is funny, tragic, dangerous, sensitive, clever, hurt, but also crazy. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is a brilliant film. It’s well written, it makes you laugh, and it makes you cry and everything else in between.

Best Films Of 2017 By Robert Chandler

Continuing our end of the year series, writer and producer Robert Chandler picks his favourite films of 2017 for Screenwords.

1-LAST FLAG FLYING

It won me over. I was cautious. A somewhat sequel to The Last Detail, one of the great American films of the early 1970s, a film that dealt with life and the inevitability of death, through the journey of three young soldiers: two of them, Jack Nicholson and Otis Young, escorting the third, Randy Quaid, across country to a military prison. Last Flag Flying is a “somewhat” sequel because it features the same three men in essence, thirty-five years later (they have the same character traits, but their names are slightly different). Both films are based on novels by Darryl Ponicsan.

Best Films Of 2017 By Lee Hill

1-Twin Peaks: The Return (David Lynch)
More than just a revival of a cult TV show, this was an 18-hour feature as mysterious, surreal and heartbreaking as Mulholland Drive and perhaps the closest a filmmaker has come to the novelistic reach of Gravity’s Rainbow or John Updike’s Rabbit books since RW Fassbinder’s Berlin Alexanderplatz.
