I did like the guest post from the Jezebel producer about the 365 movies she watched. Her descriptions were a little too pat, but I liked going through the list and seeing how her taste is split between mainstream hits and hip indie films. In criticism, her taste is a little too white, I didn’t see many films starring POC on her list. But I was impressed at some of the films she chose to watch, however she felt about them.
These were some of my favorites of her list: La Haine, Moon, The Hunger, Out of Sight, Face/Off, 20 Feet from Stardom, Wild at Heart, Devil in the Flesh, Vampire’s Kiss, Raw, Movern Callar, Before Sunrise, Sunshine Cleaning, Be Kind Rewind, Unleashed, My Girl, Atomic Blonde, Eurotrip, Boogie Nights, Go, Earth Girls Are Easy, Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead, Foxfire, and Party Girl.
I did roll my eyes when she complained at how long The Godfather is at three hours. Girl, you likely binge TV shows at that length of time, don’t complain.
Aside from that, it looked like a fun exercise, and she likely educated herself a lot. I would just encourage her to watch more foreign-language stuff, much older films, and more stuff starring POC.
