2017 has been a really interesting year for movies with more good ones than usual. I could easily whip-up a 10-best list--even with December still to come. The first time this has happened in many years.

Just watched SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER for the first time since January 1978 when I was 13. It has aged better than ever. A key 70s movie: crude and messy, sexy and profane; a completely hypnotic, ecstatic experience. John Travolta: amazing. Nothing today compares.

Why do I find Stephen Miller completely compelling and want to write a novel about him? Why do I not want to write a novel about Jim Acosta?

Defending the American voter I'm yelled at in Sunset Tower for being a Trump apologist and colluding with Russia. Is the Left fucking NUTS?

Another dinner with the Hollywood liberal establishment defending HRC, fake news, intersectionality, identity politics, PC virtue signaling.

Not having political discussions with anyone anymore. Done. Too much insanity. Another dinner ruined. People are fucking crazy. Get a grip.

My favorite movie-viewing experience of 2017 so far might just be rewatching BREAKING AWAY for the first time in over thirty-five years.

WONDER WOMAN and SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING are the two best American films I've seen so far in 2017 by a long shot. The movie moment we are in.
