Top 1000 Films: New assignment

In an effort to get my self-enforced assignment on watching the top 1000 movies back on a quarterly calendar, I have given myself 8 movies to watch in 4 months, at the rate of approximately 1 movie every two weeks.

That means that the next due date will be September 30, 2008, and will consist of the following:

  1. #77 Ikiru (Kurosawa, 1952)
  2. #94 To Be or Not to Be (Lubitsch, 1942)
  3. #114 Manhattan (Allen, 1979)
  4. #118 Red Shoes, The (Powell/Pressburger, 1948)
  5. #195 Performance (Roeg/Cammell, 1970)
  6. #202 It Happened One Night (Capra, 1934)
  7. #262 Shoot the Piano Player (Truffaut, 1960)
  8. #265 Kiss Me Deadly (Aldrich, 1955)

Also, you can find my progress on the Top 300 movies as well as the big, bad list of 1000 here.

At first glance, I see a very unchallenging list, so perhaps I’m feeling uninspired. Also, some of these feel like glaring omissions that I wish to correct ASAP.

As always, feedback is appreciated.
