The Fortune of 500

In Welcome on July 15, 2011 at 5:56 PM

The game is simple. I’m gunning to see 500 films in one year. New ones, old ones, and anything that is reasonably worth sitting through . Then I’ll write a Twitter-sized review of each to prove to myself I was paying attention.

Why 500?

I’m a filmmaker, film Major, film educator and film enthusiast. Out of curiosity, I tracked my viewing habits in 2010. The final tally was an underwhelming 135. Sure, I caught up on a ton of great TV shows, but this year I’m refocusing on features films. That’s it. I have a life, a wife, and a boat load of personal projects, but this seems like both a reasonable and enjoyable allocation of my downtime.

I’m also halfway through the year and ALMOST on pace. So I’ll be playing catch up for a while. Feel free to pipe in at anytime.

Bon film!
