Misc. film-related posts

This is the alphabetical index of all my film-related posts which aren’t full film reviews. They may briefly discuss a film but not go into a true review, present a numbered list (e.g., favorite films, must-watch silents, films I hated), or discuss a specific actor or the silent era in general. Though some of my posts in my series or mini-series about important films aren’t specifically about the respective films being discussed, but more about history related to the films, I included those posts on the film reviews index page to keep things consistent.

I apologize for the length of many of my oldest posts. I hadn’t yet learnt about how to properly edit my posts to be as on-topic and succinct as possible, and hadn’t found my sweet spot of about 650–800 words. Many of my oldest posts should’ve been broken up into more parts!
