While I'm Away: My Top 20

Hi guys, I’m out of town for a few days, so I thought I’d run my all-time top 20 favorite movies. This is purely subjective list, not a list of the “greatest” movies. Some of them are too canonical to be featured on this blog, but some of them will get write-ups in the future. (Only one of them has gotten a write-up so far, but that one shows up tomorrow)

20. Charade, 1963, Stanley Donen
19. M , 1931, Fritz Lang
18. Bringing Up Baby, 1938, Howard Hawks
17. Annie Hall, 1977, Woody Allen
16. Breathless, 1960, Jean-Luc Godard

15. High and Low, 1963, Akira Kurosawa (above)
14. The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner, 1962, Tony Richardson (top picture)
13. Rushmore, 1998, Wes Anderson (below)
12. The Manchurian Candidate, 1962, John Frankenheimer
11. The Lady Eve, 1941, Preston Sturges

To be continued… Can you feel the suspense building? Don’t you wish that there was a way to text me your vote for number one?? Well, there isn’t! Ah, sweet agony!

Fascinating to me that "High and Low" is the Kurosawa film that makes your top 20. I'd love to hear why that is.
