The Masochist List: Everything I Saw in 2013

Posted on Updated on

Yada yada yada, playing catch up, not having my license, watching rep and archival stuff. Anyways, here’s everything I saw in 2013, complete with arbitrary grades. Some day, when I’m not feeling lazy, I’ll compile another list of my favorites. Eventually. Some day. Maybe. Perhaps…

Total Count: 524

(Key: Film I Saw in Theaters, Film from 2013, *Re-watch)

(The only rewatches I counted were ones I hadn’t seen in years or not recently enough to have an opinion on the film.)
