A Month Without Film?

You might call me a film enthusiast, though, I am not entirely comfortable with that particular phrase (or word more precisely).

Enthusiasm that is.

It is a fascinating word; as I understand it what it literally means is “the god within you”.

Recently I’ve been asking myself a series of questions; what is the god within me? What is it that drives me? What is it that will catch my ear or my eye faster then anything else?

The only answer I could come up with (beside God Himself) is Film.

So I decided to initiate a sort of test: Call it a dare to myself. I’m going attempt to go a month without watching a single feature-length theatrical release, starting on the Fourth of October, ending on the Fourth of November.

We'll see how it goes.
