~New and Improved, a Criterion Task for 2019~

My attempt to watch 100 Criterion films in the span of four months (ie, end of August - end of December) was noble, but unrealistic. So this is the 2.0 version: January - December, ie a full calendar year!

As with that one, anything Criterion-branded is a go, so that includes regular spine number releases, laserdisc releases, Eclipse/Essentials series shit, and potentially stuff that is exclusive to the forthcoming Criterion streaming service.

This list will get updated as I watch films, and serves no function other than to be something I can link to in my reviews.
