My Personal Canon (Catching Up with Film)

Inspired by the 1001 Movies to Watch Before You Die, Edgar Wright's 1000 Movie list, and Roger Ebert's Great Movies reviews, I am embarking on a quest to come up with my own personal canon (of 1000 films!). What will be different about my list is that I will be writing extensive appreciations for each of them. (Ebert managed to do only 300 or so and the 1001 Movies list has many authors.) Follow my journey at my blog

Canon entries are usually every Monday and Friday and a minimum of ten per month. The best way to access my Canon reviews is to click the tag Canon.
