A to Z of our favourite films...


Recommended Posts

It's my birthday, so I can get away with anything: skipping Q and R, but I permit myself this libery only because it's been a long while since I've been blown away by a film: I've recently seen Steal this Movie, about Abbie Hoffman, an American "professional protester" against segregation and most notably the Vietnam war, and his time underground. A MUST SEE, if only to become more interested in that period and pre-Watergate ratf**king. Even if it's almost 40 year on, it made me despair about the so-called free world, knowing about Guantanamo, George Dubya's other cute moves, and other unmentionables.

Jeez, and they say one mellows with age.... how wrong is that!

Stuck to my chair just now as Miss Mini Loz is having a squealing evening unless I sit beside her holding her hand - hence time to waste so here is my A-Z list. Not counting the words 'The' or 'A'

Apocalypse Now


Citizen Kane (tough call due to Clockwork Orange)

Deer Hunter


Full Metal Jacket


Harder They Come

In The Heat of the Night


Killing Fields

Life of Brian

My Name is Joe

Night at the Opera

On The Waterfront



Raging Bull


T (2001) Space Odyssey

Usual Suspects

Vertigo - nearly plumped for Videodrome here

Withnail & I

X - X is unfair - I am definitely not plumping for X Men so I am playing my joker and including Clockwork Orange!
