Films watched in 2015: Part 1

When I started putting this list together, I quickly realised I had to divide this in to more parts. I watch quite a lot of films, and at the end of the year it’s fun to look back and see what type of films I’ve watched, has there been a theme, are certain directors more present than others, and so on. Reviewing my “I-checks” for January, February, March and April, I clearly started the year by catching up on as many Oscar-nomitated films as possible, as is the situation this year.

Further out in February and March my boyfriend and I had our “great film period”, before we moved in together we were catsitting my aunt’s cats and living in her house for a month, and took advantage of the huge HD-TV to watch a lot of films. The theme is quite clear, I was being introduced to a lot of old classics, most of which I loved. You can cleary see some directors being listed several times..

We ended the first third of 2015 by going to the movies and seeing It Follows, which I truly think is one of the best modern horror films, and truly recommend!

Most watched director: Alfred Hitchcock (6) and Billy Wilder (5).
