It’s been nearly two weeks since I last updated, I can’t say I’ve been very busy but I needed a little break from writing. Hopefully as May starts up I can get back to a more regular schedule, and post at least a few thoughts on most of my viewings. I actually saw more films than usual in April, about 30, with maybe one or two rewatches thrown in. I also saw my very first Ozu film (Tokyo Story), as well as one or two films that I’d now count among my all time favourites. It wasn’t easy to narrow down my choices to just five, but I managed somehow. Presented in alphabetical order.
Adventureland (Greg Mottola, 2009)
Legend of Hell House (John Hough, 1973)
Make Way for Tomorrow (Leo McCarey, 1937)
Orlando (Sally Potter, 1992)
Safe in Hell (William A. Wellman, 1931)
