Animirani filmovi:
Given that I haven’t seen as much animated features as I wanted to (not to mention that most of the commercial flicks haven’t piqued my interest), the ‘Inner Child’ list will be the shortest and the only one containing two films by the same author (Masaaki Yuasa, to be exact). Another exception is the honorably mentioned Lastman series.
1. Nova Seed (Nick DiLiberto, 2016) (8+)
2. Night Is Short, Walk on Girl (Masaaki Yuasa, 2017) (8+)
3. In This Corner of the World (Sunao Katabuchi, 2017) (8)

3. Rio 2096: A Story of Love and Fury (Luiz Bolognesi, 2013) (8-)

Opskurni filmovi:
Encompassing alchemical, experimental, genre-defying, highly personal, boldly eclectic, mind-expanding and/or pareidolia-inducing features (of the last three years, but seen in 2017), as well as a few ‘conventional arthouse’ films which have had limited release, ]Cinema Obscura[ list marks the 1000th article on NGboo Art and for a good reason.
This small jubilee is my way of sending a very special ‘Thank you’ to the filmmakers or rather cine-dream weavers who have given a significant boost to my self-confidence which has been almost ruined by some… local factors. Your works inspire me to move on, so I shall be looking forward to seeing your future offerings.

Akcioni filmovi:
Let the 2017 listomania (not to be confused with Lisztomania) begin with the list that focuses on action/comic/spectacle-oriented movies involving shootouts, car chases, martial arts, various CGI supplements or whatnot and, in some cases, both ‘what’ and ‘not’ and even more.
