In case you missed it, here’s our Locarno 2017 Index.
I’m introducing a new section to this column. Part of the reason it’s so hard for me to make consistent progress on my giant backlog is because much of what needs to be done involves creating film pages that don’t exist yet, which is several times more time-consuming than updating or adding to an already-existing page.
In an effort to motivate myself to create film pages more frequently, I’ll be noting my progress every week at the bottom of these columns. It will be a list of film pages created in the past seven days, arranged in the order they were added to the site. And maybe you’re curious to keep track of new pages on this site for movies both old and new.
