Mine's probably The Thin Man from 1934.
Astor, the dog, is well cute in it. I wonder if he's still alive.
The General (1926)
The Cabinet of Dr Caligari (1920)
don't know if I love it tbf tbh
last night but my wife asked me to switch over because the music was getting on her tits so I switched over to Speed 2: Cruise Control (1997).
Little does she know that I have already seen Nosferatu (1979).
having sex with vampires.
The marvels of facetime
Just trying to get a picture so that I can judge you and call you out as a massive hoarder of the remote control.
DAMN that film is long.
It was 1935.
i struggle to connect with very early cinema
& have seen it in the cinema
(not when it first came out)
or City Lights which is also 1931
ive not really seen many silent films. did enjoy Battleship Potemkin
that one that spins with the horses
probably sunrise, sunshine (i'm calling you sunshine, [term of endearment])
The Birth of a Nation (1915). He says he found it inspiring.
I think M is the earliest film that I can enjoy on exactly the same level that I enjoy modern cinema- as in, I don't have to make any concessions for the age of it, it's timeless and intellectually robust.
despite pretty much refusing to ever watch any foreign language cinema.
i've not seen many oooold films by people other than him
What was that - 1939/40? Or maybe Casablanca
(The new one)
(I like the general, but I wouldn't say I loved it)
The Seventh Seal, Rear Window or Breathless. Think it's Rear Window.
Rashomon and Harvey
truly wonderful films.
Rebecca is a pretty decent shout though as are The 39 steps (1935) and Citizen Kane (1941)
The Marx Brothers' best.
not sure I love either of them though
I really do love it. It's short enough that I watch it quite frequently. Maybe once or twice a year.
and jump out of the way <3
seriously - I wish I was dead
I prefer the The Horse In Motion (1878).
