There’ve been top 10 list threads for films in the past, but they’ve been inactive for ages now, and I thought I’d introduce a thread to make things more flexible. I think I’d struggle to make a definitive top 10 list.
I’ll start: 2001: A Space Odyssey is my favourite film. I have a DVD of 2001 which I’ve never used; it demands to be seen in a cinema, and any time there’s been a special screening, I’ve been first in the queue. It has breathtaking scope, deep and far-reaching themes, wonderful visuals and an incredible vision of the future as well as the universe itself. It seems to encompass so much about humanity. It was probably also one of the things that made me an atheist.
Other favourites include Star Wars (of course - there’d be other SW films on my list, but for the sake of variety I’ll just let this movie represent the whole saga), Donnie Darko, The Truman Show, Blade Runner, Heat, The Wind That Shakes The Barley, Cleo from 5 to 7, Lady Bird, and Your Name.
I love hearing what people see in their favourite movies. Fire away.
