OK, let’s get the Starter for Ten out of the way. If you haven’t watched The Godfather or The Godfather Part II then I must simply take a short pause and then strongly urge you to.
Right, that’s a start, let’s move on.
Apocalypse Now (1979 version) could be in there too but now I’m doing what I said I wouldn’t.
I’ll tell you a really good film that you might not have seen and that’s Double Indemnity, an old Billy Wilder movie from the mid-40s. Just excellent.
Gilda is also superb. Witty dialogue from an era when studios had proper stars.
Kick-Ass is brilliant and if you’ve not got round to seeing The Social Network that’s very good indeed.
I need to find a more structured way to approach this, it’s clearly one of those blog posts that could become a series along the lines of, “Great Films from the 60s / 70s / 80s…”
Let me know if you’ve got favourites you feel stand up to repeat viewing.
