This Week in Rankings

149409-sd

Since the last update, I posted my annual Top 100 Films of All-Time along with the latest entry in our decade-long Seattle Screen Scene Top 100 Films of All-Time Project. I went to the Vancouver Film Festival once again, where I wrote about The Wild Goose Lake, The Lighthouse, The Shadow Play, and White Lie (at InReview Online). At Seattle Screen Scene I wrote about Takashi Miike’s First Love, Tony Leung Ka-fai’s Midnight Diner, and Shunji Iwai’s The Case of Hana and Alice. And over at the Mubi Notebook, I wrote about Heiward Mak’s Fagara.

If you like what I do here or at Seattle Screen SceneThe Chinese Cinema, or anywhere else, please consider donating at my kofi page. Every little bit helps.
