Animals Moving to the Sound of Drums, (Jonathan Schwartz, 2013)


Sadly, in 2013 I saw only a quarter of the number of films I'd normally see, so to stay in scale I will list three. These films reached me on the deepest level, or at least have left the most enduring impression on me as I reach year's end. 

Suitcase of Love and Shame by Jane Gillooly

Post Tenebras Lux by Carlos Reygadas

Animals Moving to the Sound of Drums by Jonathan Schwartz

The most inspiring events of the year for me were NYFF: Views from the Avant Garde and Orphans Midwest (hosted at Indiana University).
