Last week I was asked to make a list of the top 20 records I would recommend someone listen to before they died. I really enjoyed the process of searching through my record collection and emotionally reconnecting with some of my favorite art in the world. I decided to continue the punishment of decision-making, and create a list of my top 20 essential films, (documentaries excluded.) As per my last post, I won’t be doing a write-up on each, I’ll let the films speak for themselves.
In no particular order, from left to right:
Raiders of the Lost Ark
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
Star Wars: A New Hope
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
Stand By Me
Back to the Future
The Dark Knight
500 Days of Summer
Children of Men
Night of the Living Dead
*If part of a trilogy, assume all three films.
