I challenged myself to see 365 movies in 2013, a 365-day movie project. I managed to get up to 346, which isn’t bad if I do say so myself. It was wonderful to see some classics for the first time (like Citizen Kane, Dog Day Afternoon and Rocky) and it was also nice to see some things again after many years (like Easy Living, Rebecca and Play It Again, Sam).
