I will now endeavour to watch all the films that have won the Palme d’Or post-1975. This is my current film ambition, which was, of course, formerly to watch as many Spike Lee films as I could before reaching a state of coma from over indulgence in Black-Culture-Bed-Stuy-Brooklyn-Streets-Hoods’n’Burbs-Bad-Case-Of-Jungle-Fever-Buggin’-Out-Glory.
Plenty of people set a target of the IMDB Top 250, well there’s some shit on there that I’m not going out of my way to watch, so this is obviously a fair good choice based on having liked all the films on the list which I’ve seen so far and other factors involving film pretension.
I imagine it’ll be an effort to get hold of a fair few of these, so most of this watching will probably have to occur on University time. Definitely do-able by Christmas though. Also am very dubious about the Ken Loach film, am dubious about Ken Loach generally after Ae Fond Kiss, but we’ll see whether that’s justified or not.
