One of the things that make compiling top ten lists so difficult for me is the fact that the finalists can change from day to day (or hour to hour) depending on my mood. Making choices like this tend to be extremely subjective because I'm not looking at each choice from an expert's point of view. I'm not looking at cinematography, screenplays, choice of actors, et al. with anything that even remotely smacks of expert knowledge. I'm looking at how all the parts of a movie affect my emotions and my mind.
That said, here is my most recent list of top ten favorite movies according to their release dates. Hopefully, you'll find one or two of yours here as well. Click on the name of the movie in each caption, and you'll be taken to more information about that film.
|1943--Shadow of a Doubt 1954--Rear Window|
Okay...so I had a little trouble choosing one favorite Hitchcock movie!
My interpretation of the ending of The Heiress has changed over time as my life experience has changed. I like that.
|1957--The Incredible Shrinking Man|
|1962--The Manchurian Candidate|
|1991--The Silence of the Lambs|
Do we agree on any of these films? Did I surprise you with any of my choices? Which ones? Inquiring minds would love to know!
