Venice 2017: My Favorite Films of the Festival + A Final Venezia Recap

Written by  FirstShowing

We're in the thick of the fall movie season now, with the Toronto Film Festival finishing up this weekend. I attended my first Venice Film Festival this year (read about my experience at the fest) and saw a total of 26 films across 10 days.

There are still many scenes floating through my mind, many great moments from these films. To wrap up my coverage of Venice, let's recap my favorite films of the festival as well as my two of favorite performances. I only had a chance to see three documentaries (Human Flow, Jim & Andy, The Rape of Recy Taylor) this year, so I won't be singling out one of them. Instead, I'll be talking about my two favorite films and a few others that stood out. As always, there's plenty to discuss. Let's begin, shall we?

The Venice Film Festival is a wonderful film festival that has a great legacy. Venice has actually been around longer than the Cannes Film Festival. It's currently celebrating its 74th year, while this year it was Cannes' 70th year. Venice is an easy festival to navigate, with lovely cinemas. I never once had any problems with the projection or audio, everything was top notch and presented perfectly (always a relief).
