I’m a day late with this. I’ve had an eventful last couple of days.
I watched 22 new movies in July, plus re-watched five others. I didn’t work on any movie lists this last month, except only peripherally. The one film I did from a list I watched just because I was curious to see it and it was only afterwards that I realized it was on the 101 Sci-Fi Movies You Must See Before You Die list.
Technically, I did complete the just published BBC list of the 100 best American films of all time. It was posted on Letterboxd by someone I follow and I noticed that I had seen 99 of the 100 films. The one I had not was The Shanghai Gesture (1941). I was able to watch it right away so I figured “why not?” and did.
No, in July I mostly caught up on some 2014 and 2015 films I hadn’t had a chance to see yet, as well as re-watching a few more films than usual.
Here are the 22 new movies I saw in July. Highlighted films are ones to which I would give at least three stars out of five.
