Until Next Time
As usual, I did not manage to watch nearly as many new-to-me films this year as I wanted to, but I did do better than last year. I look forward to continuing that trend and to discovering more cinema in 2016! (Hopefully, I’ll watch more older films as well; I meant to do that this year, but I clearly failed.)

Oh, and if you’d prefer a visual representation of this post, you can visit this page. (I’ll be adding a new 2k16 version of that page to the blog in the near future.) You can also keep up with all my film-viewing activities on letterboxd and on twitter.

Anyone interested in writing a guest review (or other film-related post) for this blog, should send a message to me on twitter. You can support this blog by donating or by purchasing something from this society6 shop. Any help at all would be very much appreciated.
