A Top Ten list from films in my own (small!) collection.
From the mermaid splash of color in Head, to the acid trip of Easy Rider, the small town nostalgia of The Last Picture Show and the self aggrandizing dreams of Marvin Gardens, this set brilliantly captures the tumult and ambivalence of America towards itself.
These movies are not just to be watched, but felt beneath the skin.
Bergman's celebration of his 'little world'. The scenes in Uncle Isaak's house with Isaak and Ishmael remain some of my favorite scenes in any movie. A fantastic box set.
Technicolor virtuosity. I thought of leaving out the Red Shoes, but I just couldn't.
Two tales of serial killers that were prescient in terms of our fascination with sexual crimes and the sensationalism of media coverage.
An iconoclastic film that also involves a preacher as serial killer. I love it as much for Robert Mitchum and Lillian GIsh as I do for Stanley Cortez's black and white photography.
Anna Karina and Jean Luc. Black and White and Color. Joan of Arc and The Oval Portrait. Renoir and Velasquez. Nina and Pierrot. Anna Karina and Jean Luc.
