Hello Film Doctor friends.
This Fun Friday we’re changing things up a little bit. Instead of listing a recent release and the favourite films of its director, we’re paying tribute to a rather key film industry event.
“As quickly as I could, I listed ten great films that I knew well, had seen many times, and thought I could watch for years to come with pleasure and with new discoveries to make each viewing. Then I put the list away. A few days later I took it out, changed a few things, and put it away again. A few days after that, it still seemed OK, so that’s my list.”
Here it is:
- The Engagement (1963, dir. Ermanno Olmi)
- Equinox Flower (1958, dir. Ozu Yasujirô)
- Floating Clouds (1955, dir. Naruse Mikio)
- The Lusty Men (1952, dir. Nicholas Ray)
- Man’s Favourite Sport? (1963, dir. Howard Hawks)
- Memories of Murder (2003 Bong Joon-ho)
- My Night with Maud (1969 Eric Rohmer)
- North by Northwest (1959 Alfred Hitchcock)
- Osaka Elegy (1936 Mizoguchi Kenji)
- Some Came Running (1958 Vincente Minnelli)
