I ended up having fifty viewings in January. Some of them were rewatches so the list will not quite reach fifty. There are two lists here. The one in the description are my favorites of the month and the one in the actual list category is a list of everything that I actually watched this month.
*One Film that I watched was not in database (Make It Happen, 2008, Darren Grant)
Rewatches
-Dazed and Confused (Linklater)
-Seven (Fincher)
-Machete (Rodriguez)
-The Social Network (Fincher)
-True Grit (Coens)
-Blue Valentine (Cianfrance)
-Batman (Burton)
-Kill Bill (Tarantino)
Here was my top ten of the month. (First time viewings only)
1. Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai (Jarmusch)
2. Fucking Amal (Moodysson)
3. Blue Valentine (Cianfrance)
4. The Third Man (Reed)
5. True Grit (Coens)
6. Lilya 4-Ever (Moodysson)
7. The Truman Show (Weir)
8. Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives (Joe)
9. White Mane (Lamorisse)
10. Alle Anderen (Ade)

There were a lot of other films that almost made the top ten list like Enter the Void, The Mirror, La Jatee, Deja Vu, but those were my ten personal favorites of this month. I know that I’m insane for having Ghost Dog, Blue Valentine and Fucking Amal in front of The Third Man. You don’t have to tell me. :)

I’ll be doing the same for Feb and all the other months.
