Emmett takes a look at his favorite offerings from 2017's event.
'See You Up There' deals with complex and weighty ideas, yet delivers them in a tidy and emotionally nourishing package.
Those looking for grotesque thrills may leave 'Blue My Mind' disappointed, but those open to a honest portrait of growth may well have their minds blown.
For all the dire nihilism suggested by its title, 'The Merciless' is lively entertainment.
'Hagazussa' defies straightforward analysis, but there is nothing ambiguous about its emotional wallop.
'V.I.P.' spends far too much time weaving its tangled web, and too little time ripping it apart.
Though playful, experimental, and very bloody, 'Revenge' is ultimately a film about vindicating its hero.
'The Endless' develops its high-concept premise remarkably well given the obviously limited resources with which it was made.
'The Cured' is more grim drama with loud noises than horror film.
'Gemini' is decadent pop comfort food, high on style but with a story that doesn't capitalize on its potential.
