Film School Fridays
I compiled a list of 10 films I consider to be inspiring for a little get together I'm hosting fridays for friends and family. These 10 films are mostly lesser known gems or old enough to be overlooked. They are the kind of critically acclaimed films that I think have a lot to teach about film making. They are movies with a lot of heart and a definite love of the art. So I thought I would post this list in the hopes of Introducing some or all of these to an eager audience of film enthusiasts.
( I ended the list with Moonrise Kingdom - Wes Anderson 2012. I truly feel that all film fests of any genre should end with this film. Like the movie Hugo, it leaves you with an intense love for the art of film and reminds you of the magic of film.)
1. The Fall of the House of Usher , American 1928
2. Ikiru, Ikira Kurusawa 1952
3. Aguirre, the Wrath of God, Werner Herzog 1972
4. The Reckless Moment, Max Ophus 1949
5. The Crime of Monsieur Lange, Jean Renoir 1936
6. Le Havre, Aki Kourismaki 2011
7. A Woman Under the Influence, John Cassevettes 1974
8. Slacker, Richard Linkletter 1991
9. After Hours, Martin Scorcese 1985
10. Moonrise Kingdom, Wes Anderson 2012
These should be watched with the lights out and plenty of homemade popcorn! Moving pictures, we love you !!!
