    Film School Dropouts Challenge 2018 -- Week Fifty-Two (2017 Revision): Michael Haneke

    My List | Disgustipated's Syllabus

    So, nothing's precisely "done" yet with regards to this challenge, BUT I've officially done at least one film for every week in 2018 or 2017. I still have nine films to go to finish both challenge lists, but I don't need to add anything new again, which is great.

I like how we're going kind of obscure this time around.…

    Film School Dropouts Challenge 2017: -- Week Five: Soviet Montage

    A couple of people last week said they were dreading the Swashbuckler challenge as just not their thing, but this was actually the category that made me wince. As I've mentioned in several previous reviews, I did take a film class in undergrad and our Soviet Montage feature was The Battleship Potemkin. The film was a masterclass of editing, and a particular joy after we watched the first half of…
