The Movie Journal: February 2023


I watched 40 movies in February. Seven of which I had seen previously. 19 of them were made before I was born. As it was Foreign Film February 13 of them were not made in the United States and were not in English.

Number of movies watched: 90
Number of previously not watched by me: 74
Top Five Actors: Henry Silva (4 films), Giulio Baraghini (4 films), Vittorio Caprioli (3 films), Val Avery (3 films), and James Coburn (3 films).
Top Five Directors: Fernando Di Leo (5 films), Howard Hawks (3 films), Quentin Tarantino (3 films), Martin Scorsese (3 films), Sam Peckinpah (3 films).
