Fifteen films meme

This is an interesting one (from Khanya). “The rules: Don’t take too long to think about it. Fifteen films you’ve seen that will always stick with you. List the first fifteen films you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes.”

Not in order of preference.
1. American Beauty (as I’ve just reposted a ‘review’ of it!)
2. Blade Runner
3. Magnolia
4. Fight Club
5. First Blood
6. Life of Brian
7. An American Werewolf in London
8. Un Couer en Hiver
9. Star Wars
10. Vanilla Sky
11. The Matrix
12. The Truman Show
13. Lawrence of Arabia
14. The Passion of the Christ
15. Good Will Hunting

If you read this, consider yourself tagged.

    Had our annual re-watch of LoA over the holiday, and of course the whole of

    Dr Strangelove
    The Mission
    Easy Rider
    Dr Zhivago
