Getting back into my high school years now, a couple of these may require another watch. But here's my tentative favorite dozen films released in 1997.

The Ice Storm, was one of those films that I actually didn't like when I first saw it in the theater but has grown on me over time. Also, nice to see "In The Company of Men" what a wicked film.

I'm a big fan of your lists and this one is no exception...

@jaytoast, Dude, you get it right for "in the company of men", wicked is the perfect word to describe this movie. Just missed my top 10 though !

For diverse reasons, I'm not a big fan of the following :
The fifth element, As good as it gets, Grosse pointe blank and Good will hunting (I really can stand Robin Williams giving his melodramatic show...)

But the rest really rocks.

Finally, I haven't seen 2 movies (suicide kings, Truth and consequences). The 1st one has been on my radar for a while and I will (one day) see it. I'm not familiar with the 2nd one making it even more interesting...

Please keep providing more lists ! So much fun ! I went back until 1980... Can you match this ?

Great...more movies for me to check out. :P

The ones of these I HAVE seen would end up on my list for that year too. Pretty sure we're in agreement on the number 1 spot (again).
