Top Ten By Year: 1978 Progress Update


Greetings and salutations! For most of 2012, 2013, and some of 2014 I was diligent about writing up capsule reviews for every film I watched. I still jot down thoughts about everything I see, but in my old-fashioned paper journal, for my eyes only! So I realize it looks like I’ve dropped off the face of the earth; but I haven’t! I should be looking for a second job but instead I’ve been procrastinating and making lots of progress in my 1978 (re)watchlist. I can tell you that along with 1992, and possibly 1943, this will be the toughest year I’ve tackled re: the culminating list. I’m relishing the offerings of 1978; there’s been a lot to love and I’ve still got a ways to go. If I stopped now and did a top ten based on what I’ve seen and re-seen so far, it’d be a strong group. And I’ve still got to re-watch four films that are basically guaranteed spots.

So here’s my paper watchlist (because there’s nothing more satisfying than physically crossing something off with a pen. I’ve been doing biweekly updates on twitter, instagram, facebook, etc. But not here! Which I realize is silly. So here you go:

  1. Most of my favorite 1978 films are on the list. Only a few are missing: The Big Fix, The Buddy Holly Story, Go Tell the Spartans, and Who Is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe? Enjoy!

    1. I thought about putting on The Buddy Holly Story (maybe I’ll make it a last minute addition!) And I’ve seen Who is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe which I enjoyed but didn’t feel the need to rewatch for this list : )
