Viewing #2. I still hold to my comments after my first viewing:

Another indescribable, mind-boggling, thought-provoking, beautiful and gruesome, poetic and unique film from Jodo. None of his films are easy to digest and many may not know how to react to them. I'm glad that there are still some filmmakers making strange and deeply personal cinema out there.

Happy 4th Birthday, Blog!

My blog is 4 years old today!

Continuing the yearly trend, here's how many films I've watched:

2005 - 339 (that's a lot of films!)
2006 - 369 (wow, more films than days in the year!!)
2007 - 274 (quite the jump down!)
2008 - 270 (very similar to 2007)
2009 - 234 (steadily declining)
2010 - 188(whoa, BIG drop)
2011 -236 (back up from 2010 and on par with 2009) 
2012 - 253 (steadily climbing back up!) 2013 - 352 (damn, 2nd most, after 2006, since I started keeping track and almost 100 more than last year!)
2014 - 347 (didn't quite meet last year's track record)

I thought this year that it would be interesting to actually post all the films I watched here as well.
