Don’t listen to anyone, in any given year, that it was a “bad year for movies.” No, it wasn’t – they simply haven’t seen enough. Like many years, there was an enormity of quality films in 2017.
From nods to old-school musicals and homages to classic science fiction to touching coming-of-age stories and an eerily timely neo-noir nazi horror flick, there was no dearth of variety or diversity in cinemas that helped make 2016 a great year for film.
It was a great year for film as long as you were up for some digging. Luckily, Cambridge is blessed with with such art house and repertory theaters as the Kendall Square Cinema, Brattle Theater and Harvard Film Archive, where many of these films appeared.
