So September was a bit of a tumultuous month for me. At the beginning of the month I had a wisdom tooth extracted and towards the end of the month I got into a car accident (relatively minor), so between those two things I did not watch a film a day. It was also the end of the Dorothy Arzner retrospective at UCLA, and not only did I get to see two of her films I’d never seen before, I also got to see two of my favorite films in 35mm (Merrily We Go To Hell and The Bride Wore Red). Regardless of the month’s ups and downs, I did watch several films I really loved (and one I really hated). As always, find the complete list after the cut, as well as a few of my favorites.
Ashoke Ganguli: The camera! It is in the car. All this and no picture, huh? We just have to remember it then. Huh? Will you remember this day, Gogol?
Gogol: How long do I have to remember it?
Ashoke Ganguli: Ah, remember it always. Remember that you and I made the journey and went together to a place where there was nowhere left to go.
