Film and TV Viewing Log - April 2015

Here's my list of films and one TV show I watched in April.  I saw a lot in the cinemas in London, which was pure pleasure for me. Said it before and will say it again, nothing beats watching a film on the big screen. Nothing. 

Stand outs: 

- Blade runner on the big screen, plus a varied selection of old and new films in London. Wrote more about it here.  

- Roman Polanski's Repulsion freaked the hell out of me.

- Lisandro Alonso's Jauja for its beaitiful cinematography. Still scratching my head thinking about the ending. 

- Stanley Kubrick's Boxes was a great insight into Kubrick's process and research methods for his films.  

- The pleasure of watching long films in the cinema (in London), Edgar Reitz's Home from Home - Chronicle of a Vision, almost four hours long and Haile Gerima's Harvest: 3000 Years, 150mins long. 

- Jamaa Fanaka's Welcome Home, Brother Charles - bizarre and ridiculously entertaining.
