I’ve seen a lot of movies, but yet I haven’t. This is the story of my life. Is it possible to see every film ever made? No, but you can work on seeing the ones that interest you. A rational starting point would to be watching the classics of cinema, and then venturing off to the stranger pastures it has to offer. I have willingly done the opposite. I’ve seen the 16mm Canadian masterpiece Things multiple times over instead of cinema’s masterpiece Citizen Kane (even though I own it). I’ve gladly purchased Evil Dead II on three formats instead of taking a chance on a film I’ve never seen before. If there were a screening of The Last American Virgin the same time as Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai, you can guarantee my touche would be planted in a seat for the former.
