First Views, 2013; or, It Took You This Long To See That?

I really should have been doing this before now. Over the course of 2013 I saw these older films for the first time and loved them to pieces. 

Major director discoveries/explorations: André De Toth, Joseph Losey, Michael Cimino, Robert Aldrich, Curtis Harrington, Jean Negulesco, Vincente Minelli, Fritz Lang, Lionel Rogosin, Sidney Lumet, Frank Borzage, Richard C. Sarafian, Souleymane Cissé, Arthur Penn, Budd Boetticher, Elaine May, & Robert Greene.

Performers that made the biggest impression/made me see them in a new light: Maria Callas, Gretchen Moll, Randolph Scott, Cyd Charisse, Regina Baff, Burt Lancaster, Elaine May, Annie McGreevey, Taylor Mead, Joe Don Baker, Lynn Redgrave, Sean Connery & Fred Astaire.

Unforgettable rep screenings: Sorcerer & The New World on 35mm at BAMCinematek. L'Avventura on 35mm at Film Forum.
