The year is just about over and while I have a number of films left to see, I’m pretty close to a worthy 2017 top ten movie list.
This week I’ll write briefly about my 20 favorite movies of the year, grouped into four broad categories: Women Directors, Award Favorites, Superheroes, and Comedies. Several movies I’ll mention fall into more than one of these categories, and in those cases I’ll just pick the best fit.
First up is a category I’m thrilled to see well-represented, especially in the year of #metoo: Women Directors.
This song, and the 1996 album it comes from (Crash) represent the pinnacle of my Dave Matthews Band fandom.
After this, they lost me for a bit with Before These Crowded Streets, won me back temporarily with the unreleased Lillywhite Sessions and then disappeared from my radar completely when they officially released the borefest Everyday and the inferior but “official” version of the Lillywhite tracks, Busted Stuff.
