Though I haven't quite lived up to my desired count, summer is the time when I try to watch more films than any other part of the year. This has been a particularly busy season for me, so I haven't nearly written as much as last year, or even as much as I'd like to. Regardless, I've seen some great stuff, and, for the most part, I've been able to relax and digest all of it slowly. So here's the ten best films I've seen this summer (only first-time viewings apply), with links to their respective reviews.
1. Cria Cuervos... A Film by Carlos Saura
2. Paris, Texas A Film by Wim Wenders
3. Ossos (Bones) A Film by Pedro Costa
4. Claire's Knee A Film by Eric Rohmer
5. Revanche A Film by Gotz Spielmann
6. Last of the Mohicans A Film by Michael Mann
7. The Vanishing (Spoorloos) A Film by George Sluizer
8. Flight of the Red Balloon A Film by Hou Hsiao-Hsein
9. The Insider A Film by Michael Mann
10. The Wrestler A Film by Darren Aronofsky
For now, it's back to class for another semester, back to cramming films into tight schedules.
