Lists by flaiky
How can I afford all this? I can't; I work during the fest and get free admission and industry screenings. Volunteers can also get free entry - a great tip for anyone interested.
FTV = First time viewing
RW = Rewatch
I've added ratings to the films from each director that I've seen. I realised that in my head I mostly split films into 6 categories, not 10 or 5, so since this is my list that's what I'ma do!
6* - Excellent/Love :-D
5* - Really good/Like a lot :-))
4* - Good/Like :-)
3* - Okay/Mostly like :-/
2* - Not good/Dislike :-(
1* - Really bad/Hate:-(( - shouldn't be many of these!
...and these obviously reflect only my personal response to the films. Filmographies are ranked but not strictly.
(Removed or omitted to keep limited to 100, but close running: Jia Zhangke, Roberto Rosselini, Carol Reed, Victor Sjostrom, Carl Dreyer, Alfonso Cuaron, Frank Capra, John Ford, Anthony Mann, Julien Duvivier, Henri-Georges Clouzot, Francis Ford Coppola, Joseph Losey)
There's not that many here (more time is taken up watching films!) but it shows what TV I've invested in. Intend to get through some day: The Sopranos, The Wire, Deadwood, Arrested Development, Better Call Saul...
Love but definitely have episodes I haven't seen:
- South Park
- Louis Theroux's Weird Weekends (only a few left!)
- Family Guy
- The Simpsons
-- Narrative films only as I have a separate list for documentaries --
And yes, this list does include both Titanic and Eraserhead. Apparently that's possible. :-D
(There are a few hundred other films that I love, and dozens I could have included instead, check out my 'decade' lists so that they aren't neglected!)
Seen = 33/46, and counting.
To see: A String of Beads (unavailable?), In the Cool of the Day, Joy House, Circle of Love, The Game is Over, Any Wednesday, Hurry Sundown, Spirits of the Dead, The Blue Bird, Old Gringo, Better Living Through Chemistry, This Is Where I Leave You, Fathers and Daughters
Seen = 51/51. Booyah.
