Technically, I'm a film studies program drop out - Film School Drop Outs 2018

Film School Drop Outs – Weekly Challenge 2018

A good excuse to watch a bunch of films that I had intended to see sooner or later anyway, plus a few boundary stretchers. All my selections are from the 2018 syllabus and they're all first-time watches, except for one rewatch that I selected just because I loved it as a kid and haven't seen it in a long long time.

I can hack doing two weekly challenges at once (plus Hoop-Tober next October), right? I intend to do write-ups for all these without sticking to the five sentence minimum. Any time I try to write an essay for Letterboxd, the results are painfully undergraduate as far as I can tell.
