In this time of self-imposed ostracism for the good of the realm, having ‘projects’ becomes less of an afterthought, and more of a requirement. My granddad is dutifully polishing each of his window panes, my brother is working through all the Hitchcock films, my nan through The Brothers Karamazov.
I thought I would try to watch the more than three hundred films on Roger Ebert’s Great Movies list.
Of those ~350 I’ve probably seen around fifty. These are your classic Pulp Fictions, and Scarfaces. I will hold back until a more advanced stage from rewatching names on the list – regardless of how much I want to – and attempt to give you, the discriminating reader, a thought or humble opinion on each of them. I hope you will forgive my zero effort in trying to describe the plot or characters of these films – if you want to see them, read about them.
It will be like so: four Great Movies a week, and one not-Great-Movie-but-great-movie – only in order to keep sane.
