2007 Movies: Seen and Unseen

Saw a lot of movies in 2007. About 98 in total. Mostly indie films with some exceptions. Skipped a lot of the biggest grossers, and did go to a lot of surprisingly tiny (in terms of box office) shows. Many of the indie shows below were deserving of much larger audiences. If only . . .
