Brett and I had a wonderful dinner last night at the home of a fellow LFC member and film buff. It was a fabulous night that turned even better during dinner when talk quickly darted to our favorite films. It’s a tough question – “…so what’s your favorite film?” – but isn’t it the query ALL filmies ultimately love to hear? We do indeed. For having the floor and talking about our love of cinema, childhood movie memories and great movie moments is truly what good times are made of. IF you’re a filmie.
I’ll close this post with a mention of films that came up ’round the dinner table, plus a couple more that we’ve indulged in at home this past week. They’re all just too good to go unmentioned, and I mention them here in no particular order: The Lion in Winter, The Third Man, The Day the Earth Stood Still (the original,
please), Creator, Sex & Lucia, HITCHCOCK (Psycho, Strangers on a Train, The Trouble With Harry, Rope), American Beauty, October Sky, Adaptation, Cries & Whispers, How to Steal a Million, My Favorite Year, On Golden Pond, Christmas on Mars, COEN BROS. (The Big Lebowski, Blood Simple, Miller’s Crossing, Barton Fink, Raising Arizona, Oh Brother Where Art Thou?), Grand Hotel, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, There Will Be Blood, Teeth (and there’s a reason I’ve linked this one), Woodpecker (yes, another link), The Strangers, Jigoku, Pascali’s Island, and I think I need to wind up this list …
To everyone, Happy Thanksgiving, and make time for some film this holiday weekend!
