The List

This is The List. These are the 100 documentaries I will be watching, over the next however-many months. Please note that I don’t intend to actually watch them in the order presented; the order I watch these in will be entirely dictated by my mood at the time.

Films I have already watched and reviewed are marked by a link to the relevant post. The ones I’m especially looking forward to are denoted by an arrow (<), but please note that all of these docs are ones I want to watch to some degree or another, and if any of your personal favourites are absent from The List, it’s probably because I don’t want to watch them. Sorry!
