New Year's Resolution: BFI's Sight & Sound

Progress: ✔ 4/190

I'm probably giving it a death knell by calling it a resolution, but I'm gonna anyway.

I've got so so SO many blind spots in my film lexicon, and though there are other lists I could go through to be more well rounded, this one seems the most do-able in a year. I average 120-150 new to me films a year anyway, so if I push it I think I can accomplish it!

Here's my gameplan: any time I feel like watching a movie and I don't have a specific idea, I'm going to go to this list. I will use the number of films I have left (hopefully by the end of this year the list…
