The 2017 Blindspot Film Series, Part 2

Here is my Blindspot films for 2017. For those who don’t know, the term Blindspot is given to films that you haven’t seen. Last year, I was able to watch 3 out of 10 films. I’ll be adding those films onto the list this year and adding three new/old films to the list that I would like to see. Feel free to add your Blindspot films to the comments.
