Movie List

Rule number 12 of being a filmmaker is: Observe your craft. In other words, watch movies! Lots of them! Both good and bad movies can teach you a lot about storytelling, cinematography, how to reach an audience, among other things.

However, I have not followed this rule well. There are tons of movies that I have on my ‘list’ that I need to see, yet haven’t.

Well, the excuses end today! I resolve to watch the movies on my list, and learn about them. All movies on this list have never been watched by myself, yet have come recommended, and I want to watch them. In no particular order, the list is:
