in about 100 words or less
I began this film journey in October 2008, with the goal of writing a one hundred word summary for each film, including a few words on what I thought of the film. With no time frame in mind, I am neither surprised or disappointed that it has taken over eight years to get to this point. Based on my progress to date, I fully expect to complete the list of 1001 films this calendar year. There have been many pleasant surprises along the way, and undoubtedly a few left in the home stretch. Likewise there are a good number of films that I will certainly not watch again, but unfortunately will remember. For some time now, I have also wondered which film I’ll watch last, however, with so few films to choose from, it seems rather pointless at this juncture. When choosing a film to watch, I currently base my decision on my available time, the film’s running time, followed by the genre. As this will be my last progress update until I finish the list, I’ll see you around October 2016 for the final review (Klaus Ming April 2016).
