Time for a new blogathon! I invite you to contemplate the films that make you cry. That turn you to mush. That basically make you a total mess.
Films of any genre (except documentaries), from any country, made at any time are eligible for the blogathon.
Want to write about a film that’s not generally considered a “tearjerker” or “weepie” but gets to you emotionally anyway? That’s O.K.! What makes YOU teary-eyed is the only criteria.
You are not limited to writing about a single film. If you want to choose an overall topic (an overview of 1950s melodramas, or sentimentality in Charlie Chaplin’s films, for example) that is perfectly fine.
- No duplicates. However, if someone chooses an overall topic (i.e. the aforementioned 1950s and Chaplin films) it’s acceptable for others to pick individual films from that topic.
- Fictional films only. No television shows, no documentaries.
Short films are fine, as long as they are not documentaries.
The blogathon will run Friday, May 12 – Sunday, May 14. You may post any day (or earlier, if you wish).
To claim your topic, please request your choice in the comments section below, or contact me on Twitter (@DebbieVee). Include the name and URL of your blog. Then grab one of the banners below, display it on your blog and link it back to this post.
Thanks so much for joining in!
