It's finally come. The end of another year of cinema. The end of another year of blogging about cinema. It's been a great year, with some surprising twists and turns for both independent and Hollywood cinema.
Along with the best films of the year, which is still undergoing some intense thought, come the best soundtracks. Being a massive soundtrack nerd, this was A LOT of fun to write. Keep in mind however, this is a list comprised of original scores from film and television series released in the Czech Republic during the year 2017. You won't find Baby Driver on this list, but give it a spin all the same. For those of you too impatient to read and who would rather get straight to the point, scroll down to check out my carefully selected 'Best of' Spotify playlist. Happy listening!

From 24/10 - 29/10, Prague's Bio OKO will screen 9 carefully selected gems from the actor's rewarding film career, which has spanned over 40 years and seen collaboration with great directors like Wes Anderson, Jim Jarmusch, Sofia Coppola and more. Check out some of our recommendations below.

The Square is a satirical take on the modern madness of the art industry. Packed with subtle nods to our doomed society, it makes for a deep post-viewing discussion. However, director Ruben Östlund gives a bit too much to ponder here, and that makes this Cannes Palme d'Or winner fall short.
