by ralphalberts99 | created - 12 Apr 2013 | updated - 21 Apr 2013 | Public

This is the first of 6 lists that I've been putting together for five years. The lists co-ordinate with what is on each of my hard-drives. Hopefully there's plenty of inspiration for any movie love's out there, I follow movie blogs, film festivals, indie movies and anywhere I can't see the footprints of hollywood. Any feedback ? I hope to all six list done in a few weeks,
