Top 10 Movies of 2017: ‘Get Out,’ ‘Lady Bird’ and More!

January 1, 2017. Harvey Weinstein was a powerful Hollywood mogul, Kevin Spacey and Louis C.K. enjoyed thriving careers, and Jennifer Lawrence and Darren Aronofsky were madly in love. Nope, we’re not in la la land anymore. Same goes for the drama on the big screen. Gone is the lush escapism. Many of the year’s stand-out films reflected the unsteady signs of the times — urgent, angry, provocative, desperate for hope. Here’s one more cheer to the fools who dream . . . and achieve greatness.

10. mother!
Not a typo. The mind-blowing, head-scratching WTF pseudo-horror movie — in which Jennifer Lawrence played a doomed, tormented mother Earth trapped in her home — is destined to be a cult classic/film school study. The rare Grade F audience score only makes it extra special!

9. Wonder
The true story of a disfigured fifth grader (Jacob Tremblay) struggling to fit in to his new school had the potential to be a preachy sap-fest. Instead, it was an uplifting, soul-cleansing gem that led to the ugliest of all cries. This movie should be required viewing for kids. Of all ages.

8. The Florida Project
Just outside Disney World, a group of rag-tag kids run wild on the grounds of a low-rent motel complex — while a weary, surprisingly humane building manager (Willem Dafoe, wonderful) tries his best to maintain the peace. The vibrant indie, drenched in sun-kissed pastel colors, deftly observed yet never exploited life on the fringe.

7. I, Tonya
Whyyyyyyy, whyyyyyyy applaud the meta biopic of disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding? Because it’s a wickedly sharp glimpse into a gifted athlete emotionally ill-equipped to rise above
