i don't do '10'

I've been tagged by Ivy to list my favourite 10 movies. I can't do 'favourite' (I'm too flighty) and I don't do 'top 10' anything. But I just sat down for five and came up with a list of movies I would watch again and, indeed, some of these I have watched again recently.

Nothing out of the bag here, pretty predictable, but maybe that's what you'd expect. There's plenty more where these came from, especially a lot of films I saw in the 1970s which seem to have been forgotten (anyone recall Private Vices Public Virtues, or Abundance - err, I meant Providence - remember when Alan Bates was in every movie going?)

CĂ©line et Julie vont en bateau
The Conversation
LOTR 123 (esp 2)
Rear Window
House of Flying Daggers
Hiroshima Mon Amour
North By Northwest
In the Heat of the Night
Smiles of a Summer's Night
Scenes From a Marriage
Les Enfants du Paradis
The Big Lebowski
Fargo
The Maltese Falcon
Aliens
Star Wars - The Empire Strikes Back
Poltergeist
Princess Mononoke
My Neighbour Totoro
Terminator 2
Magnolia
Donnie Darko
Demon Pond
Life of Brian
Notorious
Truly Madly Deeply
The Big Sleep
Europa
Le Charme discret de la bourgeoisie
It's a Wonderful Life
Requiem for a Dream
To Be or Not to Be (w Carole Lombard)
Vertigo

Great list! I completely understand about not 'doing favourites' -- I can't, either. My list were just movies that first came to mind. :-)

Some of yours'd be some of mine. Hard, always, to pick. And a Libran does dither.
