Feast or famine

I'm not sure why people are finding ambiguity in the end of this movie.

Usually, there’s either a glut of films that I want to see, or an endless wasteland, stretching out interminably. This year has sort of broken the pattern: it’s mostly an endless wasteland, with only occasional bright spots. Lots of weekends in which we languish, waiting for something halfway interesting to come to town.

Here is a list of films I liked this year, in no particular order:

Black Swan

Inception

Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows

The Social Network

The Kids are All Right

Splice

And here’s the list of things we intend to see but haven’t yet:

Winter’s Bone

True Grit

Blue Valentine

Micmacs

That’s 10 films total, for 52 weeks. Appalling. Maybe next year will be better.
