Films in 2012: May!

New to me: 32

Re-watches: 13

Total watched: 45 (Theater trips: 0)

Total in 2012 so far: 249

I watched fewer films this month than in previous months. This is because I spent a little over a week watching no films at all. Four days out of town and five days of terrible illness that rendered me completely incoherent stopped me from watching anything for a pretty good while. Despite this, I managed to watch only seven fewer “new to me” films than I did in April.

The May “new to me” list, in order of most recent to least recent:

  1. You Only Live Once (1937)
