A consolidated film diary for tracking my viewing, which I hope could also serve as recommendation. There are quite a few films – feature length and shorts – missing from this list, either because I had seen them years ago and don’t have a good memory of them or simply because of my negligence in jotting these titles down. I hope to add them to the list whenever I come across them again. The films have been rated as an obligation based partly on merit and historical importance, partly on taste and initial impressions, partly on an absolute scale and partly on a relative one. In other words, totally arbitrarily. A low rating for some films, especially challenging ones, stands for an acknowledgement of my inability to engage with them fruitfully.
[Rough key: 10,9: All-time Favorites/Masterpieces, 8,7: Pretty Great/Essential, 6,5: Compelling, but with major reservations, 4,3: Mostly disappointing, 2,1: Turn-offs]
