No, "Duck Soup" is not my all time favorite movie. It is a favorite, to be sure, but it actually meshed well (too well) with my long day yesterday.
My favorite movie is "The Apartment" with Shirley MacLaine and Jack Lemmon -- my favorite of all time.
What about war movies? Don't they bring me peace?
Not generally. Maybe I watch different kinds than my readers?
I do love "Coming Home" and the whole "I'm uptight and reserved and you can tell it because I straighten my hair" versus "I'm sexy and free just like my hair" subplot.
I'm being silly but I do love "Coming Home."
That's probably my favorite of the war movies.
I love it mainly for Sally & Vi's friendship and Sally & Luke's romance.
Yes, I do love Jodie Foster films (two people asked why I didn't). I did not try to start a Jodie section in my collection. But over the years, I've got pretty much everything from "Silence" onward that she's done. It wasn't planned. I just tend to enjoy her movies.
