The Blind Spot Series is a yearly film event hosted by Ryan of The Matinee. For my previous blind spot choices, see 2014, 2015.
I'd like to think that my choices for the series varied for the past two years. However, as I'm coming to a conclusion to this year's blind spot list, I made an unfortunate discovery: I didn't have fun with my choices compared to the first year. Some of the films were daunting to watch, or I was underwhelmed with my expectations. I may have also possibly set my goals a bit too high this year, and have suffered complete burn outs for weeks at a time, and that might have played a role in viewing the film of the month. I was planning to go with foreign cinema for 2016, but seeing the results of this year, I might take a route similar to 2014 but instead of picking randomly, all my choices are films in the 70's. Here is my list for the upcoming blind spot series.
Harold and Maude (1971)
The French Connection (1971)
A Woman Under the Influence (1974)
Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai Du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles (1975)
Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975)
The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)
All the Presidents Men (1976)
Taxi Driver (1976)
Saturday Night Fever (1977)
