The Kenji Project

As a young filmmaker/writer I’m interested in gaining as much knowledge about film in the next few years as I possibly can. This means I must embrace my cinephila, and seek knowledge about films that not many people have had the pleasure to view. I asked Kenji, who has an impeccable taste in movies, and is the creator of some of the very best lists on mubi to help me with this project.

I hope to learn more about not only films, but the human condition and the human experience by doing this project.

I wish to make some of the most beautiful films of this era. I know this will help inspire me and aid my craft.

The Rules are that Kenji must give me a film to view each week, and then i’ll write a review on it and give my feedback. I’ll do this from January, 2011 to January, 2012.
