PopGap Diary: November 2018

PopGap Diary: November 2018

Too many movies. Too little life.

A Long Slowvember

It's always a slow start to November, as I recover from the crush of Octoblur. Even though Octoblur 2018 was light relative to previous years, covering an average of more than one movie per day is exhausting.

There's no plan guiding November's schedule. A few of this month's entries will be movies that I watched earlier this year but put off writing about for various reasons. Otherwise, it will be a mix of movies that have been assigned to me from exchanges, movies that I want to rewatch prior to coverage by favorite podcasts, and movies from my long-term Eat My Dust project. Also: random watchery according to whim.
