Excellent work! I've seen two of those (The Aristocrats, Jarhead), which gives you some indication of how ill informed I am about film. I only buy Sight & Sound for the credit lists...

No problem!

Hopefully, there shouldn't be any major gaps in the list, although there might be the odd limited release/indie flick that I missed.

I'm a bit pushed for time at the mo, but as no one has offered their services, I'll have a go at a general events list as well.
