1. This might be my last year in the Bay Area, and there are still so many neighbourhoods I've never been to. So this year, I want to visit every BART station. I reserve the right to abandon this resolution if it seems like it'll get me killed.

2. The Hit List: Last year I called out ten movies I should've seen:

Andrei Rublev
Barry Lyndon

The Conformist
The Mirror
The Night of the Hunter
Rio Bravo
La Strada

Well, I got three out of ten. Ikiru is tiresome, Rio Bravo is a lot of fun and The Night of the Hunter is a masterpiece. For this year, let's add Letter from a Unknown Woman, Notorious and Sansho the Bailiff to the list.

3. Finish my thesis. This is important too, I suppose.

    And Andrei Rublev's coming to the PFA in less than a week. But you probably knew that...

    Yep, and I'll still be out of the country. Clearly the Film Gods don't want me to watch this movie.
