For the past several years Laura of Miscellaneous Musings’ fame has made a list of films she commits to watching (links to her 2014 list) that year, movies that are considered essentials or that help fill gaps in certain genres or areas of cinema. I’ve always loved the idea, followed the lists with interest and, seeing how other bloggers have been inspired to join her with their own lists, I thought it would be fun to finally do one myself this year.
I started with almost 30, and of course I’ll try to see many of the ones I relegated to the bench too. From the many that have been repeatedly recommended to me, and ones I think I probably should have seen by now, I tried to include a wide range of countries, cover many genres and types of directors and hit all the decades I consider classic.
Here are my 10 for 2015:
RIFIFI (1955) substituted Bob le flambeur (1956)
Following Laura’s practice I’ll update this post through the year with links to my reviews. Should make for an even more interesting viewing year!
Feel free to leave any thoughts on my selections, but no spoilers please.
