First Time Viewings: December 2015by Kraemorr | created - 01 Jan 2016 | updated - 01 Jan 2016 | Public
It took until the final month of the year to be my most productive, 18 films watched for the first time. I also re-watched 80's classics E.T. and First Blood. I saw a surprisingly great film called Paperhouse by Bernard Rose which takes the honours for being the best of the month. Other notable directors include Roman Polanski, George Clooney, Norman Jewison and Joseph L. Mankiewicz.
