Singin' in the Rain
I'm not able to express how enjoyable is this movie for me, I love music (as you can see in other choices I made) and comedy, and love stories (romantic comedies are a guilty pleasure) and this movie is a compendium of that (and a funny tale of cinema history).
Sorry, it's so subjective. This is not the best movie of Buster Keaton but I love this movie cause I work as a projectionist and I'm a fan of detective stories. Maybe it's a little egocentric (not little, it's very egocentric) that I choose the movies based on how they converge with my life experience but if you don't want that don't write me again to answer this poll. (That's a joke.)
Why, if I'm not a practicing Catholic, do I watch this movie and believe that miracles happen?
The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
I love John Ford's movies, but especially this one because it's the first western (with Fort Apache) I saw in a big screen in an old (now closed) cinema in A Coruña, and I was impressed by the humanity of the story.
If The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance was the first western I saw in a big screen, this was my first science fiction horror, also seen in an old and now-closed cinema in my hometown (with other John Carpenter films: The Fog, Christine, etc) and I became a fan of John Carpenter/Kurt Russell, even now.
Another horror movie for people who work in film archives.
Fire Will Come
A reflection about our country and people in Galicia (and a bit of chauvinism).
The first time that I understood that cinema and philosophy are not enemies, and that kind of auteur cinema isn't boring.
Year of the Horse
As a fan of Neil Young and Jim Jarmush I love this movie (with all respect to Jonathan Demme's Heart of Gold).
Another guilty pleasure: a very funny action movie.
It's hard for me to choose only 10 movies, and for you understand those choices and my written English.
