The Last Ten Films I’ve Seen

Leave a comment

The idea of keeping a running list of recently viewed films is absolutely stolen from Michael Glover Smith’s wonderful blog, White City Cinema.  Michael’s blog is an informative, generous and epic repository of reflections on film that should be treasured by all who view, think about, write about movies.  I am hoping that these lists will be a pump-primer for further discussions, so let the great rumpus begin!

I have Michael’s blessing on this theft, so herewith my first entry:

  1. Celine et Julie vont en bateau (Jacque Rivette)
  2. Vivre sa vie (Jean-Luc Godard)
  3. Orphans of the Storm (D.W. Griffith)
  4. Twenty-four Eyes (Keisuke Kinoshita)
  5. The Birds (Alfred Hitchcock)
  6. The Zombies of Mora Tau (Edward L. Cahn)
  7. Streets of Shame (Kenji Mizoguchi)
  8. Night of the Hunter (Charles Laughton)
  9. Habemus Papam (Nanni Moretti)
  10. Repast (Mikio Naruse)
