This year I’ve tried to take part in Ryan McNeil’s Blind Spot series over at The Matinee, wherein every month we cross off an unseen classic from our own blind spots. I’ve nearly finished, just got the last one to write up (The Conversation), and as it’s nearing the end of 2015 it’s time to decide what next year’s blind spots will be. And to do this I’m enlisting you fine folk to help me vote.
Below, and on the sidebar, there is a poll to vote for the films I’ll be watching next year. I’ll watch the 12 highest voted movies, so please be kind. They’re all taken from the 1001 Movies list, as indeed were this year’s. I’ll close the poll on New Year’s Day, and please vote for as many or as few films as you’d like.
Thanks for voting!
Regardless of how this turns out, you should really watch The Maltese Falcon.
Voted for 12 of them. You’ve got some really good stuff listed.
I agree. The Maltese Falcon is an absolute must. The Big Sleep comes close.
You have not seen Das Boot? Oh, there is a good one there waiting for you.
I voted for 10. I’ll follow others and say you have to watch Lawrence of Arabia. Do it on the biggest screen you have (i.e. not a tablet or PC).
Thank you all for voting, and thanks for your suggestions!
