A year ago, on April 25th 2012, I decided to keep a log of all the films I watched. Much with my Goodreads account, it’s not (entirely) some kind of OCD behaviour –it’s an aide memoire for my ailing brain. Anyway, these are the 125 films I’ve watched in the last 365 days. I also gave them some fairly arbitrary scores I’d be hard pressed to justify if you called me on any of them. Only three movies scored a 9, and they’re all pretty old (Point Blank, the restored director’s cut of The Shining and Blue Velvet) but that doesn’t mean I don’t try and stay in touch: the asterisk denotes a film I saw at the cinema this year, and out of those 25 only a couple were reissues.

Anyway, that list (in chronological order, obvs):
