Year in, year out, every self-respecting film journalist scrambles to get their opinions heard on what they thought were the years’ hits and its misses, and BFSRFilm is no exception. The only difference here is the time it takes to complete my reflections on the year: rather than dropping these updates in the sea of retrospectives at the beginning of December, January is the time for my backward-looking updates, as well as a forward-looking preview to the following year.

On this page you’ll find a link to each individual post – six in total – that reveal my favourites of 2017 in television and film, as well as a look at my favourite individual episodes of television (not limited to those shows that make my best-of), the best soundtracks of the year, and those of 2017 that I loathed. There will also be a preview of those I’m anticipating for the forthcoming year, as well as those that are due to be released that I was lucky enough to have seen during the 61st BFI London Film Festival.
