Roger Ebert has a very interesting blog that I check up on from time to time.
this is a snippet from his most recent post...
"What's your favorite movie? As my faithful readers all know, the answer to that question says a lot about the person answering. It could be used as a screening device on a blind date. Among other things, it tells you whether the person has actually seen a lot of movies, and I persist in believing that cinematic taste is as important as taste in literature, music, art, or other things requiring taste (including food and politics)."
so, I was thinking, if I had to list them, what are my favorite movies? and by this I mean the ones that I could watch over and over without ever tiring of them.
1. The Return, dir. Zvyagintsev
2. The Odd Couple, dir. Saks
(I worship Walter Matthau. I could include the Bad News Bears on this list. re-watch that movie as an adult, you'll agree... perfection.)
3. Elling, dir. Næss
4. Harold and Maude, dir. Ashby (also, Being There)
5. Blue, dir. Kieslowski
6. Stroszek, dir. Herzog
7. Once, dir. Carney
I love Terry Gilliam, but I can't take watching most of his movies repeatedly. Brazil, maybe... there is also Guy Maddin and the Brothers Quay — again, same thing. I also watch mountains of old films, but no single one repeatedly.
I wonder what my list says?
