Happy New Year from Films etc.

Keaton-New Year's resolutionsI generally don’t do New Year resolutions, but if I did, one of them would be to not let procrastination prevent me from writing more posts. It’s time to get this thing out of the ditch and back on the road. To that end, here’s a short note wishing everyone HAPPY NEW YEAR — along with shots from a few of my favorite films to take us out.

Finally, here’s a great clip of Gene Kelly dancing the title song from Singin’ In the Rain (1952). It’s joy personified, absolutely exhilarating.

I’ll be back shortly with lists of what I think were the best feature films, documentaries, and TV shows for 2015. In the meantime,  we’re bingeing our way through the second seasons of Mozart in the Jungle (Amazon) and Dicte (Netflix), plus catching up on films we haven’t seen yet. See you later. Ted Hicks
