The Summer Movie Marathon Project Series!

Robert De Niro in The Deer Hunter
Now that I am off for my first year of University (with one exam in May), I will have over 4 months to kill- and for a film buff what that means is movie watching! There are tons of movies I want to watch, and I thought it would be fun to run several different marathons including 70's films, Japanese cinema and a few other little ideas. I want to discover more cinema, and hopefully find new favourites. I hope you enjoy the series, and I hope it helps spread the love of cinema! The films will be recorded on letterboxd, so links will be added in this post later on. Below is the list of the marathon titles, and the films that will be in it. Subject to change, in due time! Enjoy!
