    Holy wow. That’s a tremendous year! Inspiring me to do a better job of cataloguing my viewings. I think your December might be my favorite month.

      Thank you very much! Gosh, I’m so exhausted from last year, I don’t know if I want to try this again. But, I probably will. Oh, for the love of film.

      I shall! My Favorite of 2012 will be up at VeryAware.com relatively soon and I’ll probably make a list of my favorite discoveries of 2012. SO many wonderful films, though, many of which slipped into my Top 101 list a while back.
