As I slowly work through my A+ list of favorite films, it’s occurred to me that there needs to be some sort of index for this list. And so, this is it.
For a film to make this list, it must be the perfect embodiment of its genre or, better yet, stand beyond genre. It must be at least 20 years old (so I know that it’s stood the test of time), and I personally must of have known and loved the film for years–preferably decades. These are, in the truest sense of the word, my all-time favorite films.
Here are the films I’ve written about so far, in alphabetical order. About half of these are essays I wrote specifically for this list. The others are Blu-ray reviews, appreciations, and other types of articles. I’ll identify those. If I’ve written two articles on a particular film, I’ll include both.
This list will continue to grow.

You may notice a new banner at the top of this page. Yes, I’ve removed the Bay Bridge motif and replaced it with images from some of the theaters I write about. And I’ve also removed .net from the blog’s official title.
When I started this blog more than ten years ago, I wanted the URL bayflicks.com. Unfortunately, it wasn’t available. Much to my shock and surprise, it was owned by someone on the East Coast. Imagine that! We’re not the only bay.
A few weeks ago, bayflicks.com became available, and I bought it right away. Then I sat on it until I had time to do something about it.
Now I’ve done it. Click on www.bayflicks.com, and it will bring you to this blog. Bayflicks.net is still the default domain name, although I may change that eventually.
Whether I make that change or not, I can now just call the blog Bayflicks. People and browsers will assume the .com, and that will work.
So the next question: Should I grab bayflix.com, as well?

This post is a test of WordPress for Android. I’m writing this one my Droid X.
I’m not as fast swyping as I am with a full-sized typewriter, but it’s faster than typing on a phone’s keyboard.

I was hoping to give the Mill Valley Film Festival significant coverage this year, as well some of the many other festivals going on and coming up. This time of year, the festivals really pile up.
Unfortunately, family obligations and work that actually pays—such as reviewing home theater equipment for PC World—has to take a priority. I won’t have much time for Bayflicks.
I’ll continue to do my weekly newsletter, but for the time being, I won’t be able to do much else here. I’ve got a couple of reviews, already written, that will be going up soon (in fact, one is going up just about now), but that’s about it.
Hopefully I’ll be able to increase coverage in a few weeks.

I Googled classic blu-ray today because, well, it’s the sort of thing I’m likely to Google.
Guess what came up at the very top? An article I wrote for PC World back in November: 10 Blu–ray Titles That Show Off Classic Movie Formats.

I’ve added a new theater to the Bayflicks list, VIZ Cinema. Located near Japantown and the Kabuki, the Viz seats only 143 and projects film and HD video. It has THX-certified sound. It specializes in Japanese cinema.
In fact, I found out about it from a comment on my The Bad Sleep Well piece. Thanks, Brian, for bringing this to my attention.
Next Friday, the Viz launches a week-long series on Kurosawa’s crime films. Expect more in my next newsletter.
June 6: I’ve altered this post to correct a factual error. When I originally wrote this, I mistakenly thought that the VIZ only projected video.
