April in Revue 2012

Well, this has certainly been a big month for cinema for me. I have watched more films within this month than I have in my lifetime I think. Even more so than last year's summer, which was insane. Well, I watched a variety of films in this month looking at directors such as Akira Kuroswa and Sergio Leone. I have not written many reviews outside the silent marathon, so I should get on board with a few soon. Many of the films I watche din this month that I watched were pretty long, includning Once Upon a Time in America, 2001: A Space Odyssey and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2009), which is why it seems I have watched over 50 films this month. Well, I am not near that number but I still watched a lot. Here is April 2012 in revue.

For May, I think I will explore some Non-US directors and watch more films from around the globe. Some on my list are: City of God, The Orphanage, Let the Right One In and The Seventh Seal. Any recommendations of fairly modern great non-english films?

  1. I wasn't impressed by Tin Tin, visually stunning but lacking narratively.
