2017 in Films: 365 Days, 628 Films, and a Year Full of Cinema!
2017 was quite the film (and TV!) watching year for me. I got really obsessed with a lot of things and I watched more films this year than I have in a few years. After the cut you can see all 628 new-to-me films I watched (and you can read my monthly breakdowns here). This year was filled with a lot highlights both in terms of what I watched, but also places I visited and people I met. Here’s hoping 2018 will be even better!
August 2017 in Films
This month was mostly filled with Summer Under The Stars, but I also caught up on a bunch of Sam Shepard films, and went to Noir City Chicago. As always, everything I watched is under the cut.

Movie Quote of the Day – Green Dolphin Street, 1947 (dir. Victor Saville)
Marianne Patourel: These figures prove that at the present cost of operation, a steamboat will eat up all its profits
Octavius Patourel: I still say, it’s most unseemly for a young woman to know so much about the shipping business.
Marianne Patourel: Oh, Papa, you’ll be using steamships in eight or ten years. But, by that time, you’ll be retired and I’ll be running the business.
Octavius Patourel: By that time, you’ll be married to some smart young fellow who will carry on in my place.
Marianne Patourel: If I ever marry, it won’t be because the groom is a good businessman.
Octavius Patourel: Marianne, my dear, sometimes you shock me.
Marianne Patourel: Of course I do. I’m bold and scheming and sometimes I think I’m not quite nice.
