Andy Wallis, of Islay High and Scottish Screen fame, has been encouraging me to list my top ten films of the decade.
I must admit I am not a huge fan of one thing over another. I tend to think these fav lists are really difficult. They tend to be transient and depend on mood.
I see it as something that guys to do which I don’t. The example from ‘High Fidelity’ by Nick Hornby. Of the constant making of the top 5’s
So I have struggled.
Struggled to get it down to 10 that is. An example is the remarkable project that was the Lord of The Rings Trilogy.
They were a great drama and stories, they were a remarkable body of work and were all released in the beginning of the decade. I would quite happily sit down and watch these and feel that they deserve a place in my favs but not 3 valuable places.
So here is a collection of some of my fav films of the decade Which ones I like more than others moves according to my mood and company……. in chronological order:
I have a whole list of films which could be above, Touching the void for example but its ok because the list will change tomorrow
