I spent the first week of 2018 holed up at home. It was negative a bazillion degrees outside in Chicago (still is, honestly), and working from home means I can basically hibernate for days on end if I want to. (Which I do more often than I care to admit.)
All that time at home was filled with just over twenty new-to-me films, and because I like to write about movies (and need content to fill this little corner of the internet of mine), I thought I’d share with you what I watch and how it all went.
January’s films included some of the best cinema of 2017…and some of the less good, too. I saw three movies on the big screen (Phantom Thread, Call Me By Your Name and All the Money in the World); there were 11 documentaries in there, and films from Mexico, France, Sweden and Brazil.
