I have a watchlist that has over 1,100 movies on it. How do I decide where to even begin? It seems every time I take one movie off I add about five more to replace it!

dude welcome to the club of serial movie listers! we should get business cards or something. what I usually do to control the list is to pick a few each week that I’ve been meaning to watch and find it online and bookmark it or just download it so its immediately available. I think you’ll find you’ll see a lot more of your watchlist if you just control it a bit like that and make it more easily accessible so you don’t get too lazy to go looking for a movie to watch. I also sometimes find common themes in the films and just dedicate a week to that theme or pick a director and make a dent in their filmography. i can’t say your list will get any smaller since like you said, we’re always adding new movies but that’s kind of great right? it’s like a neverending stream of something you love. don’t look at it like it’s a stressful thing, it’s a shitload of possible incredible experiences (or at least learning experiences).

Sulley, you’re not supposed to name it. Once you name it, you start getting attached to it. Now put that thing back where it came from or so help me.

"So pack up the bags to beat back the clock
Do I let her sleep or should I wake her up?
You said
We both go together if one falls down
Yeah, right,
I talk out loud like you’re still around
Oh, no, no

And I miss you
I’m goin’ back home to the West Coast
I wish you would’ve put yourself in my suitcase
I love you
Standin’ all alone in a black coat
I miss you
I’m goin’ back home to the West Coast”




Werner Herzog behind the scenes of Fitzcarraldo (1982)
