1. More Korean cinema. I live near a Korean movie theater and have been going pretty regularly since seeing The Admiral: Roaring Currents in 2014. But my screenings have become inconsistent, my records of them haphazard. And there's so much from the past that I have not seen, notable works like The Housemaid and Miracle in Cell No. 7 and Oldboy, the oeuvre of filmmakers like Hong Sang-Soo and Shin Sang-Ok, etc. It's time to take it seriously.
2. Year-long 1989 retrospective. I turn 30 this year, and I want to look at what Hollywood was churning out while I entered this world. So, in addition to my scattershot retrospectives, I intend to celebrate the 30th anniversary of a film's release every week, from now through December.
3. The return of Casting Coup Tuesdays. I don't think I've done them since the Agatha Christies in 2017, and I've a few percolating. Stay tuned.
4. 2018 Hollmann Awards in January, 1968 Hollmann Awards in February. The former is easy: we'll start looking back at the year we just left starting tomorrow! As for the latter...we'll see.
What do you hope to see here in 2019?
