While I watched less films this year than I have in several years, I saw so many films this year that I truly loved (and a few dogs!). I also watched a lot of television (Hannibal, The Leftovers, Outlander, You’re the Worst, Boardwalk Empire (RIP!), The Knick, Louie, black-ish and Jane The Virgin are all worth your time!) and read 60 books! I also added a new feature to the site: Female Filmmaker Friday. You can read all of those pieces here. After the cut is my list of 365 new-to-me films I watched in 2014 (46 of which were directed by women), as well as a few highlights.
Erica: You know what I did yesterday? I threw out a whole new jar of blackberry jam. Martin loved blackberry jam. I think the problem was that I didn’t do things as myself, you know? I did things as this Martin & Erica, Martin & Erica. It wasn’t his fault. I liked it.
Saul: Saul & Erica will be different from Martin & Erica.
Erica: You wanna see other women?
Saul: I want you.
Erica: You’re free to.
Saul: I don’t want to.
Erica: Then don’t.
Saul: Do you want to see other men?
Erica: Not today.
Saul: I’m getting a headache.
