The time has come, my little friends, to talk of other things… Maybe my 2017 blind spot series? Oh, go on then!
For those of you that don’t know, the Blind Spot is a feature run by Ryan of The Matinee where each blogger taking part picks 12 films, one for each month. Obvs. Usually classic or renowned films that they haven’t seen yet. Their metaphorical or physical ‘list of shame’ you might say.
You can read my 2015 Blind Spot series here where I’ve linked all the posts, and my most recent 2016 Blind Spot. It’s soooooo difficult to pick my favourite, but In The Mood for Love (2000) was certainly special.
If you’ve followed for the past couple of years, you’ll know that foreign films is my jam. It’s a lot easier to spontaneously pop on an English language film I’ve not seen before but takes that little bit more effort with Foreign film. Other years, I’d gone to the effort of picking a different country for every month, but I’m afraid when it comes to world cinema, not all countries were made equal. So to hell with that rule, these are films I just REALLY want to see.
Without further ado…
- Battle Royale (2000)
- Cinema Paradiso (1988)
- Farewell my Concubine (1993)
- Come and See (1985)
- The White Ribbon (2009)
- The Cabinet of Dr Caligari (1920)
- Volver (2006)
- Tokyo Story (1953)
- Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon (2000)
- Let the Right One in (2008)
- Breathless (1960)
- Delicatessen (1991)
2017 is largely going to be the year of no challenges. No ‘watch this many films’ or ‘you must do all of this.’ There will only be my blind spot, and that makes me pretty bloody happy and excited about the carefree, easy year ahead.
I look forward to reading everyone else’s Blind Spot entries over the coming year, that’s mainly how I found new film blogs in the first place. Have you seen any that I’ve got on my list?
