Non-theatrical top 10 of 2017

The world of movie distribution is increasingly fragmented, to the point where many accomplished and important feature films never get commercial theatrical release. Since official critics' lists and award nominations are generally still confined to movies that play in theaters in at least some limited capacity, it seemed only fair to make a separate list of my favorite movies of the year that bypassed U.S. theaters and went straight to VOD, streaming or other home platforms. (Running list, subject to change.)
