Boadicea & Me

My response to see an almost 3 hour documentary about Chris Marker (Chris Marker, Never Explain, Never Complain) and two of Marker's great documentaries, Une Journée d’Andrei Arsenevitch (One Day In The Life Of Andrei Arsenevich) and, Le Souvenir d'un avenir (Remembrance of Things to Come)

Indolent Spinster Weekly Report #5

Music Talk with your  Indolent Spinster,  Josie Boyce.

Indolent Spinster Weekly Report #9

Indolent Spinster Weekly Report #9

The Maltese Falcon
Midnight Run
Young Frankenstein
Raiders Of the Lost Ark
Citizen Kane
The Breakfast Club
His Girl Friday
Nights Of Cabiria

Lots of other films out there, but I wanted to do a list of nine, and these are literally the first 9 I thought of. The list is in no particular order. All of the films are obviously favourites, but if I was making a best of list as opposed to a most re-watchable, it would be different. some films require more time passing between viewings than others, in my opinion. I don’t even really like rating a film until i have seen it at least a few times over several years. Tastes and times change.
