All the President's Men
I am torn - I wanted to put Starting Over with Burt Reynolds and Candice Bergen and Jill Clayburgh.... Or Klute... But it's an election year so I am going with All the President's Men.
A Woman under the Influence
Feels like family.
The story, the character, the style and even the behind-the-scenes making of the film are so incredibly inspiring to me as a filmmaker...
I rewatched this recently for Halloween. NOTHING has come close to being this vile and disturbing yet unbelievably grounded.... Plus Ellen Burstyn. You should do just an Ellen Burstyn favourite movie list.
I have never listed this movie before but I keep circling back to it thematically so I need to put it on the list....
I am not sure if I need an explanation....
It feels unfair to put this on the list - because I dearly love Barry Jenkins and Adele Romanski and all my FSU family who made this film... But it continues to grow in importance as time goes on....
This movie encapsulates a wandering spirit in me I have to watch out for - a side that leaves me teetering on a razor's edge...
Best to go in with no expectations... but the best film I have ever seen about grieving and forgiveness....
It's impossible to make a definitive list. Ask me in a week. It will be different.
