If I had a pound for every time I’ve been asked what my “favourite film” is ever since being a Film Studies student, well, I wouldn’t need to be a student. It’s something I’ve been wondering about a lot recently and feel as though I should really have that ultimate film to answer with.
However, try as I might, I really can’t choose just one so I thought I’d share ‘My Top 5’ (in no particular order, of course) with you and my most memorable scenes. This list is definitely subject to change and I just know I will have forgotten someone or something along the way!
Almost Famous (2000)
My all time favourite, if there was going to be one. A fabulous story which, as a wannabe journo/writer, I can relate to.
What’s Eating Gilbert Grape (1993)
One of Leonardo DiCaprio’s most impressive performances, in my opinion.
A Little Princess (1995)
A childhood treasure!
Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion (1997)
One of those, ‘you can watch it 50 times and never be bored’, time after time.
Blue Velvet (1986)
A David Lynch spectacular!
…but then there’s Girl, Interrupted and Pretty In Pink too. I guess I’ll never be any closer to finding my ‘favourite film!’
