Milos Stehlik's Favorite Films Of 2017

WBEZ film contributor Milos Stehlik, of Facets Chicago, looks back to some of his favorite films of 2017. Here’s a preview of what he thinks, “It seems to me that 2017 was a pretty awful movie year — at least I have very little memory of it.”

Milos is not pleased. His exception is Graduation, the film by Romanian New Wave director Cristian Mungiu. Milos calls it a “brilliant masterpiece” and says “if you haven’t seen it, and shame on you, there is no excuse if you haven’t seen it, your life is not as full as it could be."
