Once again I am going to try to reduce my movie watching this year to try a lil more creative writing (this hasn’t worked, saying this, ever since I got a Letterboxd account). Once again this list is inspired by the always inspiring J, here are the hold-me-accountable priority films from my watchlist that I will watch—barring coma or death—in 2022. An attempted mix of arthouse and popcorn favorites.
