    Day 30/30

    I did it.
    I watched Bullet Ballet, every day throughout April. Not sure if that speaks more about the film's quality or my autism, but in any case, this has been quite a ride. I don't necessarily recommend doing this sort of thing since it could potentially ruin your enjoyment of a film, but I guess due to my obsession with this one, the enjoyment stayed pretty consistent. On the other hand, I see that my challenge caught…

    ★★★★

    If you've followed me here for a while, you probably noticed that I tag films which include vomit.

That aspect alone would make for an insightful viewing for any aspiring filmmaker.

    A made-for-TV play based on Arthur Miller's 1949 stage production of the same name. Widerberg made it clear that this was less of an industry product getting churned out on a tight schedule, and more of a passion project meant to give the younger generation (around age 16-18) something to think about for their future while exposing them to Miller's acclaimed work for the first time.

    Despite the Swedish cast and crew, they still used the original English names and…
