    This is a watch I've been dreading for a long time, but also looking forward to. I've been calling this my favorite movie (tied with Mirror) since I watched it first 143 days ago, but I wasn't sure if I still had the same passion I did for it at the time. Thankfully, I do. This is the first film that I fell in love with, it still lives in my head every day of my life. Isak Borg is…

    This was so good, it's been way too long since I've seen one of Diaz's films and this brought back the feeling I've been wanting to experience again for a while. I can't wait to get off of school so I can binge more of his films. So, about this one, I really wasn't expecting much but I was pleasantly surprised. The 61 minute runtime suited this story very well, and I love the way it ends. Although this is definitely not Diaz at his best, it's a good slice of his style that is worth watching.

I'd say I probably laughed the least from this one because of how consistently heart breaking it was but I still enjoyed it a lot. I seriously don't get how anyone could dislike this. I'm really excited to see the next few Chaplin films, especially Monsieur Verdoux.

    This was the film that got me interested in cinema outside of the US. I remember being so blown away by the end of my first watch, knowing that it was nothing like I had ever seen before. Now I am just as blown away on my second watch as I was then. The way Stalker manipulates time so fluidly is unlike anything I've seen alone, but the rest of the film is just as unique. I think this film…
