10 Films I love
In no particular order
- The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the desert
- The Mission
- Dr Zhivago (David Lean's version)
- Barry Lyndon
- A Clockwork Orange
- Don't Look Now
- Sweet Charity
- The Producers (1968 version)
A few others I toyed with including were A Room with a View, 2001: A Space Odessey, Bladerunner, The Fifth Element, La Cage aux Folles, Torch Song Trilogy, Quadrophenia, Velvet Goldmine, Ghandi, The Matrix, The Italian Job, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, Naked Lunch, Its All Gone Pete Tong, Walk on Water, The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Heavenly Creatures, Some Like it Hot.
The list is interesting. I definitely have a penchant for the following:
- gay films
- large scale epics
- films from about 1965 to about 1985
- films set in Italy
- musicals and films about music
I definitely seem to shy away from the dominant US-based film set.
I definitely am not pushed by war, violent, slapstick, gangster or most horror of thrillers. My sci fi tastes are very much not in the horror/violence end of the genre.
