My Month in Films: April 2014

April 30, 2014

Still from Willow and Wind, the 2000 film by Mohammad-Ali Talebi

14 films, 9 first time viewings

For various social and familial reasons, this ended up being my worst month for total viewings in several years. The two first time viewings that didn’t make either list were The Two Faces of January and The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
