In reviving my languishing blog in late-2019, I started doing themed weeks of reviews around various topics. This started with some national cinemas (and I imagine that these will comprise the bulk of my themed weeks), but moved on to some notable regions and will eventually also encompass genres, styles and specific content too. The reviews I did during that week, as well as other reviews relevant to the theme (both before and since the themed week) are linked from the images below.
