Here are my Blindspot films for 2020. 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 one film on my list. Even though I try to make time to watch these films every year, it’s amazing how much of a struggle it is to find and watch. It’s not an excuse, but it’s the truth, and I still love trying to make it through this list every year. Let me know what your Blindspot films are – add them to the comments.
