Films and books in 2023

I have watched 84 films in 2023 which is a fairly large number, considering that I don’t always have a lot of leisure time to spend. I read 21 books.

The best movies I watched in 2023 are:

  • Into The Wild. This one is truly a great film. I use it in my teaching at the school, so I watch it at least once a year.
  • Husbands and Wives. Woody Allen’s take on marriage, and how it is hard to maintain a successful marriage, whatever that means.
  • Another Woman. Another Allen movie, that belongs to his serious works, dealing with psychology of human mind.
  • The Banshees of Inisherin. What an unusual film, that contains many unseen and hidden elements. I will have to watch it again.
  • The Father. I like how viewers can experience the father’s health deterioration and understanding of “reality”.

I read only 21 books in 2023, but it is okay. Anyway, I hope I can read more next year. You can see my reading list here.
