Hal Horn's 25 Films seen 1st in 2010

I make regular trips over to Hal Horn's Blog THE HORN SECTION for good recommends on rare movies. Take a moment and go there now. Done? Ok. Good stuff right? Always some interesting unheralded films there and I love that. Hal gave me a nice little list here too:


25 FILMS I SAW FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 2010

To clarify: I am excluding films released during 2010; otherwise, MACHETE, TOY STORY 3, GASLAND and many others would make this list. These are the films I finally caught up with in 2010. Some are indies from the last few years that were hard to find until cable; others are hard to find oldies that I’ve been trying to see for years. Still others I should have caught by now, but didn’t for some reason or other. Some are great; some are awful, some are so bad they’re good, and still others are merely interesting but flawed. Even the worst have some quality making them worth a look.
