Blindspots 2013

It may be presumptuous of me to plan for another year's worth of Blindspots posts when I still have two more from 2012 to complete (expect one for The Long Day Closes within a week and Judex...well, later). Still, these are some films I've meant to watch for some time, so perhaps writing them down here will prompt me to get to them. As with last year, I'll cover one a month at random (save for the horror film meant for October). The films are as follows:

All That Jazz (Bob Fosse, 1979)
By the Bluest of Seas (Boris Barnet, 1936)
Duelle (Jacques Rivette, 1976)
Elephant (Gus Van Sant, 2003)
French Cancan (Jean Renoir, 1955)
Gertrud (Carl Theodor Dreyer, 1964)
The Long Goodbye (Robert Altman, 1973)
Suspiria (Dario Argento, 1977)
Too Early, Too Late (Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet, 1982)
Trash (Paul Morrisey, 1970)
Ugetsu (Kenji Mizoguchi, 1953)
The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (Jacques Demy, 1964)
