2019 — Indeed Another Year's Worth of Film por Steve Pulaski
Well, here we are again. The seventh year of these “Year’s Worth of Film” lists that I’ve been diligent in keeping organized, comprehensive, and to the point. I’m going to preface this year’s (indeed another year) by saying expect a drop-off in some sense. In 2018, I moved to LaSalle-Peru, Illinois, a little over an hour from where I used to live, to accept a full-time job on the radio. My full-time job, coupled with my geographical area (half-suburban/half-rural) limits my access to the latest theatrical releases.

Well, here we are again. The seventh year of these “Year’s Worth of Film” lists that I’ve been diligent in keeping organized, comprehensive, and to the point. I’m going to preface this year’s (indeed another year) by saying expect a drop-off in some sense. In 2018, I moved to LaSalle-Peru, Illinois, a little over an hour from where I used to live, to accept a full-time job on the radio. My full-time job, coupled with my geographical area (half-suburban/half-rural) limits my access to the latest theatrical releases. You might’ve noticed that since July 2018 if you’ve kept up with my work on my website or on here. In addition, due to my full-time job, schedule, and other commitments, I will not be able to watch as many films as I have been in the past. I predict you’ll see a lot more days that say “None,” in reference to films watched, and totals less comparable to some of the football numbers I was putting up in years prior. That’s fine with me. I’m not going anywhere. Neither are my reviews. You can’t get rid of me. I might not be as prolific as I once was, but I’m still kicking. If there’s one thing I’ve learned since I moved, you never regret going out with coworkers or spending time experiencing things as opposed to spending a lot of time in solitude. The passion isn’t going anywhere and I’m beyond excited to continue this tradition on MUBI. To a great 2019!

This list comes with the exact same rules and setup as the previous three lists (linked below for YOUR pleasure). Don’t be afraid to ask about a rating or leave a comment about anything below. I thank you again for checking out and following my list in advance.

NOTE I: Short films do count towards the final total for each month/the year end total. I do this for a couple reasons. For one, I recognize short films as professional productions that deserve to be reviewed. Secondly, by not counting short films for the final monthly/yearly total, you’re almost effectively writing off their existence and that you even bothered to watch them. On that basis alone, they should stand their ground and serve as something you watched during said month/year. Finally, there are a barrage of shorts/short film directors that I am personally exploring, so don’t think of the shorts as filler by any means. I’ve been perusing through the short filmography of Laurel and Hardy for nearly a year, I watch the Oscar-nominated Live Action/Animated short films each year. They’re for personal exploration, and benefit me as a film critic, and therefore, they will be counted.

NOTE II: Expect more themed-months this time around. Nothing exclusive to the theme, but a certain dominance of a genre or a connective tissue, ala the month of December 2018, when I watched a lot of Alfred Hitchcock movies.
