    Day 30/30

    I did it.
    I watched Bullet Ballet, every day throughout April. Not sure if that speaks more about the film's quality or my autism, but in any case, this has been quite a ride. I don't necessarily recommend doing this sort of thing since it could potentially ruin your enjoyment of a film, but I guess due to my obsession with this one, the enjoyment stayed pretty consistent.
