“Movies touch our hearts, awaken our vision and change the way we see things. They take us to other places. They open doors and minds. Movies are the memories of our lifetime. We need to keep them alive.”
Martin Scorsese, director (Shutter Island, Taxi Driver , Goodfellas)
I have been a movie geek ever since i could remember. Initially, i used to watch all kinds of movies- chick flicks, romcoms, psychothrillers, horror, fantasies, anything that came my way. But, as my experience improved, i realised that certain movies had special powers. They could pull you into a trance, play with your minds and recede back into its depths only to surface back time and again, like an engraved memory.
So,today, i would like to make a list of movies that still take up a privileged spot in my heart.
1. Schindler’s list
2. Pride and prejudice
3. The last samurai
4. The terminal
5. The next 3 days
7. Pretty Woman
9. Julie and Julia
10. Catch me if you can
11. The boy in the striped pajamas
12. Bucket list
13. The Truman show
14. Gone girl
15. Shawshank Redemption
And there ends my list. If any of you have watched any of the above movies, do comment on what you loved about it and do recommend your favourites!
