Hoop Dreams (1994) (Steve James)
I’ve decided to continue with Ryan McNeil’s blindspot blogathon. Many other LAMB bloggers are also participating, so it should be fun. The idea is you select 12 films you’ve never seen before, and write about a film each month. I’ve compiled a list of films I definitely want to watch in 2015. Based on flickchart, these are the highest ranked films by each director that I haven’t seen. I also went with films that have a score of 8/10 on IMDb or close to it. So besides Hoop Dreams, which are the rest?
This is Spinal Tap (1984) (Rob Reiner) Patton (1970) (Franklin J. Schaffner) Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) (multiple directors) The Ten Commandments (1956) (Cecil B. DeMille) The Killing of a Chinese Bookie (1976) (John Cassavetes) Mary Poppins (1964) (Robert Stevenson) The Magnificent Ambersons (1942) (Orson Welles) Andrei Rublev (1966) (Andrei Tarkovsky) All That Jazz (1979) (Bob Fosse) A Face in The Crowd (1957) (Elia Kazan) Nashville (1975) (Robert Altman)
