Movies Watched in May 2018

what-im-watching-in-2018

My movie-watching in May dipped a little from April, watching only 32 films, six of them on FilmStruck. Yet I made pretty good progress on two of my long-term projects, seeing eight films from Roger Ebert’s Great Movies list and seven from Michael F. Keaney’s Film Noir Guide: 745 Films of the Classic Era, 1940-1959. I also knocked out two of the films discussed in the book Argentine Cinema: From Noir to Neo-Noir. As always, films I particularly liked are in bold with links to reviews.
