I thought they fired Rex. I guess this was a guest column.

I always enjoyed his year-end tributes to the recently departed more than his critical pronouncements, which they will hopefully publish next week.

The only controversial choice I see among his ten worst is Get Out.

I liked the spectacle of Dunkirk, but not the lack of personal drama. Even the Mark Rylance part of the story, which did have a dramatic arc, was played with more stiff upper lip British reserve than need be. Their Finest, which is among his top ten, is a more dramatically rewarding film about the Dunkirk evacuation and the film being made about it during the blitz. I'm glad he stayed awake during that one!

What I find most amusing about Rex Reed's 10 worst list is the fact that it could easily be another critic's 10 best list.

I changed the title from John Waters Top Ten something that can include any other interesting top ten's of 2017.

Here is Film Comments:

https://www.filmcomment.com/best-of-2017/

A lot of their top 20 (nearly half) are from 2016. I assume that international critics taking part in the poll have not seen most of the recent U.S. releases.

And Film Comments unreleased films in the U.S.:
