Last night I watched this month’s Blind Spot entry – the eleventh in the series. I think it’s the first time in months I wasn’t feverishly watching the night before like I was cramming for a chemistry exam in grade ten! Progress.

Today though, I’m casting an eye towards the sixth year of the series.

Once again, the great thing about being surrounded by such film-literate friends (and family members), is that they can point me in the right direction. Recently, for instance, I might not have caught up with films like BLOW OUT, STARMAN, THE LAST DETAIL, GINGER SNAPS, MARY AND MAX, and KON TIKI were it not for the specific suggestion of others.

So in thinking about next year’s Blind Spot Selections (set ’em up again!), I’m turning the curation over to anyone who reads this post.

Over on my Letterboxd profile, you’ll find plenty of notable titles that I haven’t seen. Choose the ten you believe are most egregious and the top choices will make up next year’s list. For bonus points, if there’s a film that isn’t listed there that you know I haven’t seen (or think I haven’t seen), feel free to make note of it.


So have at it folks – what am I watching in 2017?
