I watched quite a few 2013 releases in December (as often happens at the end of the year), but I won’t be writing about any of those films in this post. The 2013 releases that I saw this month that I really loved (including my favorite of the year!) made it into my Favorite Fifteen Films of 2013, which was posted yesterday (or last year. . .). I saw quite a few interesting films this month, including several films from 1913 (I’d like to thank The Academy for those). I also (finally) graduated from my M.F.A. program earlier this month. Which ultimately means I should have more free time for here on out. I don’t know if that means I’ll up my film viewing (I’m hoping to actually go out and do things this year!), but as any fanatic knows, I’ll never truly abandon the cinema! You can see all the films I watched in December after the cut, and later today I will be posting a giant wrap-up summarizing my entire film-watching experience in 2013. Enjoy!
