The 300 Week 43: Comfortable Halloween with Tales of Spooky Projection Issues
Why good day, guys and ghouls, and welcome again to The 300, a function on my spooky try to look at 300 films in theaters within the 12 months 2018. I’ll be watching new releases, classics, hidden gems, and competition movies to expertise the broad world of cinema in all its types. With a lot moviegoing selection, there should be one thing right here so that you can get pleasure from. If not, step into my laboratory and do the Monster Mash till you might be content material.
As all the time, there are three guidelines for The 300:
- The film have to be a minimum of 40 minutes lengthy, assembly the Academy of Movement Image Arts and Sciences’ definition of a function movie.
- I have to watch the film at a movie show, screening room, or out of doors screening venue.
- Whereas I can watch films I’ve seen earlier than 2018, I can not depend repeated viewings of the identical movie in 2018 a number of instances.
The senioritis of the final two weeks has let up barely. I attempted to look at principally horror films this week because it’s Halloween, however I broke my rule to catch a restoration of a Chantal Akerman film. Perhaps the loneliness that many artists really feel is a sort of existential horror. Perhaps. If something, the Akerman movies I’ve seen mirror my very own bouts of alienation and solitude. But it may be so comforting to know that one other individual understands the melancholy form of your isolation. Whereas I nonetheless have so lots of her films left to see, 2018 is the 12 months I turned a Chantal Akerman fan.
I’ve 21 films left to go. Drink up, bucko.
And so, onward.
