The Index

This is the index for all my shit. For my look back at a year, click the appropriate year, or hit the Year in Review category for the years in the order I actually went through them. It also contains my thoughts on the Oscar nominees who did not make my award nominees and a general shortlonglist of my favorite performances. But it doesn’t have my Top 20 films of each year, for that you go to the Top 20 Per Year category obviously (or Top 10 in earlier/weaker years).

For just a general look at my rankings of the five main Oscar categories (Picture/acting), click the Oscar Rankings. I don’t like comparing documentaries with standard films, so documentaries get their own post-click Documentaries for that.

For some essays I wrote for college, go to the Essays. For the HMWYBS essays, go to HMWYBS. To find the links to a specific film’s spot in this blog, click the List of Films.
