This meme has appeared on various blogs the past few days and I finally had the time to create mine. It was unbelievably challenging to think of movies for some letters (X, Q) and limit my choices for others (D, E, M). In the end, my list is very reflective my personal study of cinema — before, during and since college. My interests in classical Hollywood cinema, experimental cinema, Neorealism, and post 9/11 American independent cinema comes through.
Here it goes.
There you have it — 27 films that I adore. How do you think I did? Comment away!
