Ryan McNeil at The Matinee is doing his second "Blind Spot Series" and has invited other bloggers to join him.
In Ryan's words, joining this series requires you to "cull together a list of “Blind Spot” films…movies that we as movie enthusiasts likely should have seen by now, but haven’t for one reason or another. After narrowing the list down to a truly manageable twelve titles, the goal would be to watch all twelve over the course of the next year, and to write one’s thoughts afterwards."
So, I'll be doing just that: seeing one of these films a month for twelve months. As far as the list is concerned, I included at least one film from every decade dating back to the 1920s, and I tried to pick films from different genres and countries. Have a look after the cut.
