Best of 2017 - 'David Lynch Eats Festival Darlings for Breakfast' Edition

As the title suggests, this list is compiled specifically for David Lynch's mind-bogglingly mind-blowing '18-hour movie' to be placed at No. 1 and followed by my favorites of 2017 which, in the majority of cases, have also attracted the attention of 'metacritics'. (For the inclusion of 2015 and 2016 titles, blame the distributors.)
