Film and TV Viewing Log - March 2015


Upstream Color


Here's my list of films and one TV show I watched in March. It includes quite a few documentaries alongside a varied selection of films.

Stand outs:

- Favourite films, Upstream Color and In the Fog. Both utterly sad, but one with a slightly happier ending than the other.

- I finally got to see Life Itself, a documentary about Roger Ebert. I also really liked Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon and Anton Corbijn Inside Out.

- Watching Derek Jarman's first two films. Hopefully I will get to see his other films in the next few months. 

Here's the complete list and ratings:
