First Time Viewings: February 2017

by Kraemorr | created - 23 Mar 2017 | updated - 23 Mar 2017 | Public

A very good month, I got in 26 films in total. Some classic Marx Bros, Chaplin, Coen Brothers, John Waters and F.W. Murnau. My Favourites of the bunch are Duck Soup and Hail Caesar, completely different eras but equally wonderful. Also finally saw Nosferatu, and it certainly is quite amazing, if only all of Murnau's films were available.
