The MAD Challenge was a competition I had with myself to watch one movie every day for an entire year – from September 13, 201o to September 12, 2011.
As a filmmaker, I think it’s very important to immerse oneself into film and The MAD Challenge was my way of immersing myself. There were no rules as to what genre I could watch (documentary and foreign included) as long as it fit in the running time of a feature. Here were the rules:
1. I watch one movie every day for a year.
2. I could not watch any movie that was already included in the Challenge more than once and have it count.
3. I could not watch a movie in advance. I could only make up for my debt if I have accumulated one.
You can find all of my reviews for those films (labeled by number) in the Archives of this website.
