F.I.L.M. of the Week

SeThis page is dedicated to the weekly series I call “F.I.L.M. of the Week.” F.I.L.M. is a contrived acronym for First-Class, Independent Little-Known Movie. The primary requirement for a featured movie is the first word, that is, to be first-class.

I decided to list these movies on a separate page so that you as a reader can have easier access to some of the great movies that I have been reviewing without slogging through a unwieldy category page. Any movie listed on this page is a sure bet for a phenomenal rental.

Enjoy and happy moviewatching!
