TOP TEN LIST OF MOVIES. My summer reading list got positive feedback so I thought I would venture again. But this time, it’s a movie list to wile a way the cold, dark days ahead; that is a safe forecast for New England anyway. It is an eclectic mix and in no particular order.
- The Host, (1996), directed by Bong Jo0n-ho
- Little Otik, (2000), directed by Jan Svankmajer
- Sullivan’s Travels, (1942), directed by Preston Sturges
- The African Queen, (1951) directed by John Huston
- Dances with Wolves, (1990) directed by Kevin Costner
- On Guard, (1997), directed by Phillipe de Broca
- Like Water for Chocolate, (1992), directed by Alfonso Arau
- Amelie, (2001), directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet
- Kiss of the Spider Woman, (1985), directed by Hector Babenco
- Nowhere to Hide, (1999), directed by Lee Myung-Se
Runners Up List:
- Broken Lullaby, (1932), directed by Ernst Lubitsch
- Big Trouble in Little China, (1986), directed by John Carpenter
- City of Lost Children, (1995), directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet

So there’s more than ten; you get extra! But there are so many good movies if you sit and think about it. Good movies come from all corners of the world. When it is dark and icy and the world of hot chocolate has descended, rather than traveling in the real world, why not step into a good movie instead?
Wow. Thank you for the art, Trevor!
