At least 10 previously unwatched movies a month in 2010 2011. Feel free to recommend movies, I'd really love it. (No film school stuff though, got those pretty much down pat because I studied film. No "The Ring"esque horror films too. Just, no.) Anything that struck a chord, in any language, and preferably well-made, do tell.
