December 09 favorites

These were my favorite first-time viewings during this past month.

Some Photos in the City of Syliva (2007)

Miss Mend (1926)

The Private Life of Don Juan (1934)

Joris Ivens films
(of the 9 Ivens films I watched, these were the 4 I most enjoyed)

Pour le Mistral (1965)

...A Valparaiso (1963)

The Seine Meets Paris (1957)

Philips-Radio (1931)

This is my third month making this list. Had I been making these for the entire year, I could have picked my favorite first-time viewings for the whole year. How cool would that have been? Instead, all I can offer are my five favorite first-time viewings for the past three months:

1. Joris Ivens films (see above)
2. Film Ist. a girl & a gun (2009)
3. Four Seasons of Children (1939)
4. Diatoms (1968)
5. Under the Bridges (1945)

If I can keep these lists up for another year, expect a cooler list at the beginning of 2011.

Thank you, anonymous, for the support. I have worked hard to become a better writer since deciding that writing was something I wanted to do (not long ago). Assuming I didn't make your comment myself during some stress-induced internet-sleep-surfing, the support is very encouraging.
