Blind Spot Series 2017 List

I'm a little late on annoucing my list for 2017 but at least it wasn't never.

Anyone joining this year round (first time under She Likes Movies) is the Blind Spot Series which was started and hosted by Ryan from The Matinee. The list is comprised of films that are considered classics and films that should have been watched by now. There are twelve in total for each month of the year. Ryan's list can be read HERE.

My list this year is not quite as diverse as I had hoped with 5 American, 1 Australian, 1 Swedish, 1 French, 1 German, 1 Czechoslovak, 1 Irish, and only 1 British. I was quite disappointed at first as I had wanted to use this list to watch films I would be less likely to see but the American films are those I really should have seen by now. It's also quite amusing that 3 of the films have been turned into stage musicals too.

Bring on 2017!


The list in full, in no particular order:

The Network
Priscilla, Queen of the Desert
Belle De Jour
Wings of Desire
Closely Watched Trains
The Seventh Seal
Rope
Top Hat
In the Heat of the Night
The Commitments
The Purple Rose of Cairo
The Man in the White Suit

  1. Great choices! I've seen all but Wings of Desire and Closely Watched Trains. I've tried to record that second film twice and something went wrong both times!! GRRRR! But I'll keep trying.

    As to the others I didn't hate any of them though naturally I've liked some more than others.

    Favorites off the list-Priscilla, Belle de Jour and Top Hat. I'll be looking forward to read what you think of each.

    1. Thank you! Network seems to come up quite a bit last year so I thought it time.

  5. The only film I've seen on your list is The Seventh Seal. The first time I saw it, I didn't really get it but after my second viewing I realized why everyone likes it. I hope you enjoy your picks!

    1. Thanks :)

      I'll remember that. I get what you mean about second viewings. They can change your perspective.
