Great list, Ashley. I didn't get around to seeing Loveless or The Insult yet.

6. Thelma (Joachim Trier, Norway)
7. Song to Song (Terrence Malick, USA)
8. The Shape of Water (Guillermo del Toro, USA)
9. The Square (Ruben Ostlünd, Sweden)
10. Call Me By Your Name (Luca Guadagnino, Italy)

and for anyone who cares, my long list of honorable mentions:

Marjorie Prime (Michael Almereyda, USA)

I'll make my list after I see a few other films of interest that got shafted by the Academy (Columbus, Lucky, Wind River).

I am hearing that the movie that won the most prestigious award is about a woman who fucks fish, is this true?

Just one fish, and she seems quite dedicated to said fish, but they do indeed fuck. More than once.

And people say the Oscars only go with the safest picks.

Those were all great. And I highly recommend Marjorie Prime, which on a second viewing may have jumped onto my short list. Based on a play but some very interesting themes relating to What is human? in the Philip K. Dick vein. Jon Hamm, Lois Smith, Tim Robbins, and Geena Davis were all fantastic.

Your honorable mentions list is far better than your top 10 IMO

In fact, it's basically my top 10, which I'm too lazy to list right now.

I extended out to twenty to get Collette in there. Idk why I won't move it up any higher, but it was also one of movies that stuck with me most through the year (since I saw it, at any rate).

I saw it while I was pregnant and stupidly emotional, and after THAT scene I sat there in the movie theater pretty much frozen, panicking over becoming a parent. I was just like, 'anything can happen at any moment. Oh my God.'
