2009: A Year In Film

January 22, 2010 at 00:27 (Film)

According to my Film Diary I managed to watch 165 films in 2009 and of those, I think 54 were released in 2009 (or got such a limited 2008 release could only realistically been seen on DVD in 2009).  I’ll add in the three 2009 films I’ve caught up with over the last few weeks to give the full list of all the new releases I saw last year, in reverse chronologically order, as follows:
