Denver critics pick the best of 2017

The 90th Academy Awards nominations will be announced Tuesday, Jan. 23. I suppose it's inevitable that this year's Oscars -- the broadcast at least -- will be dominated by #MeToo and #Timesup, continuing a trend of year-end ceremonies that have been dominated by issues about sexual assault and harassment. But before we learn who has been honored and who has been snubbed by Oscar, there's a bit of additional business to conclude; i.e., the announcement of the Denver Film Critics Association picks for the best of 2017. Most lists speak for themselves, so I'm going to offer this one without comment. Enjoy, and feel free to add your own choices.
