David Erlich Best of 2017

 

 

David Erlich does wonderful video montage art pieces that also help sum up the year in film and give a very esoteric view of the best films of the year. As obnoxious as he can be (Don’t ever read his CGI/Zootopia commentary) his editing skills are top-notch, his writing at its best and most personal (Personal Shopper) is wonderful, and he definitely plays a significant role in helping my awareness of indie works to look out for both big, like the Call Me By Your Name hype back in January, and small, like the trans femme Chilean film A Fantastic Woman.

I hope this can be a fun discussion piece for the general year in film, and for the video and artistry involved with it by itself.
