May and June 2020 in Films

I didn’t do a round up post for May due to the state of things at the beginning of June, but I do want to do the films I watched in May justice, so I am doing a two month post this month. So, after the cut you will find everything I watched in May *and* June, a breakdown by decade, and my favorites.

April 2020 in Films

It is the truth universally acknowledged that April 2020 flew by at the speed of light. March seemed interminably long, but I don’t even know where April went. I definitely watched less films in April, but I did watch some truly stunning ones. As always you can find the whole list, a breakdown by decade, and a few of my favorites after the cut.

March 2020 in Films

It feels like March was a month that just would not end. As is with many people, I haven’t left my house in several weeks (except for a few trips to the grocery store), so my movie watching increased quite a bit this month. As you will see after the cut, I’ve continued watching A LOT of Japanese films. I feel that trend will continue for the foreseeable future. As always, after the cut you can see everything I watched, plus a few highlighted favorites.

January 2020 in Films

I cannot even fathom that we are in a new decade. This blog chronicled almost an entire decade of my cinema consumption, as well as my growth as a writer, my changing interests, tastes, and pursuits. As we move into a new decade I find myself with less and less time to dedicate to this blog, but I will attempt to still do these month round ups. So, as always, you can see everything I watched last month and a few favorites.
