12 for 2017



Last year, I attempted the Blind Spot series, a project where you watch one new-to-you classic film, and blog about it. This project is hosted by Ryan McNeil at the Matinee blog, and I encourage you to follow his blog for his own entries and those of the other blogs participating. I was not fully successful in getting 12 posts up last year, but I did achieve 9 from my list. I also saw lots of other new-to-me movies that I didn’t get to write about, so altogether I feel my 2016 film watching was a success.

I’m going to make another attempt in 2017 using this list. As before, I reserve the right to revise the list, but here’s the initial resolution:

  • Day for Night (Truffaut) [carried over from 2016]
  • Intolerance (Griffith) [carried over from 2016]
  • The Quiet Duel (Kurosawa)
  • Drums Along the Mohawk (Ford)
  • Othello (Welles)
  • Ivan’s Childhood (Tarkovsky)
  • The King of Comedy (Scorsese)
  • Man With a Movie Camera (Vertov)
  • The Passion of Joan of Arc (Dreyer)
  • M. Hulot’s Holiday (Tati)
  • Late Spring (Ozu)
  • The Lodger (Hitchcock)

As my thoughts are posted, links will be added to the list above. Here’s to a great 2017 of movie watching!

  1. Hey, “Intolerance” is a carry-over from last year for me, too! (And the year before that as well.)

    You always have a thoughtful analysis of your films, and each one of these will be a treat to read. Looking forward to this series! 🙂
