My friend Chris Gwilliam on Facebook got sort of tagged in the Fifteen Films meme, and I wondered if I had time to post this before our internet connection dies again: The rules: Don’t take too long to think about it. Fifteen films you’ve seen that will always stick with you. List the first fifteen films you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes. Tag at least fifteen friends, including me, because I’m interested in seeing what films my friends choose. (To do this, go to your Notes tab on your profile page, paste the rules in a new note, cast your fifteen picks, and tag people in the note).
So here are my 15 films, more or less in the order in which I thought of them.
- The wages of fear
- Dr Strangelove
- The mission
- Ostrov (The Island)
- At play in the fields of the Lord
- Sammy going South
- Lawrence of Arabia
- The horse’s mouth
- The ugly American
- The seven samurai
- Morgan: a suitable case for treatment
- Pan’s Labyrinth
- District 9
… which doesn’t mean that is the order in which I liked them.
And I’m not tagging anyone because trying to think of more than fivce people to tag is to much schlep, so feel free to respond if you are so moved, and if not, well, don’t.
