2015 Blind Spot Series

Rififi

Now that we are in the final two months of 2014, it is time to start thinking about next year’s Blind Spot Series. Created three years ago by James McNally, and championed by Ryan McNeil, the series is designed to encourage film lovers to catch up on films that they have been procrastinating on seeing for some reason or another. Though I still have two more Blind Spot films to see before year’s end, here are the films I plan to watch as part of the 2015 Blind Spot Series:

Rififi (Jules Dassin, 1955)
My Dinner with Andre (Louis Malle, 1981)
Hiroshima, Mon Amour (Alain Resnais, 1959)
Paris, Texas (Wim Wenders, 1984)
The Conformist (Bernardo Bertolucci, 1970)
Imitation of Life (Douglas Sirk, 1959)
Incendies (Denis Villeneuve, 2010)
The Spirit of the Beehive (Víctor Erice, 1973)
3 Idiots (Rajkumar Hirani, 2009)
The Monster Squad (Fred Dekker, 1988)
Spellbound (Alfred Hitchcock, 1945)
Withnail & I (Bruce Robinson, 1987)
