I'm working now on "All Shorts on an iCM List" so I could focus on the brief encounters. Also, 177 on the main list. Maybe I can finish the list this month.

I will not actively work on this, but I borrowed quite a few french movies last month that I didn't have time to watch in the French challenge, and I reckon many of them are on TSPDT.

4. Tokyo Story (1953) 8.1
5. Tonari no Totoro (1988) 8.0
6. Badlands (1973) 7.7

Few comments:
A. When the daughter in Tokyo Story started to prepare herself for mourning clothes
even before the death of her own mother; I couldn't tolerate her ugliness.
People always tend to forget the effects of fashion authority in their lives.

B. I didn't really watch before any of Terrence Malick films, except of course
his great film Tree of Life. It was quit surprising when I saw his name today in
Badlands (1973). To be fair, the music of the film was magnificent.

Nah, I'm not going to end up doing too well in the Westerns Challenge - at least not when some participants are attempting seven movies every single day. (D:)

I can't imagine that I'll do much better here, but I might as well participate since (a) some of the westerns I have lined up will overlap anyway; (b) this is as a good a way as any to organise revision viewings; and (c) there are some striking TSP gaps in my viewing and this might be a good excuse to finally plug some of those up.
