Agree, a great movie. And I'm not into motorcycles or cars. Just thought it was a great story with Anthony Hopkins as some old fart being able to accomplish something when the establishment told hm he couldn't.

Hell or High Water. Think it came out in 2016. Awesome movie not many people saw.

I always recommend Almost Famous to people if you are a fan of 70s rock and music journalism.

Anything by Richard Linklater.

Some less obvious films I really like:

Atomic Cafe (doc on the Cold War)
They All Laughed (Bogdanovich's NYC in the early 80's)
A Midnight Clear
Mountains of the Moon
Any film by Whit Stillman
Costa Brava (circa 2000 indie film from Catalunya)
My Man Godfrey
Johnny Stecchino
The Gods Must be Crazy

I'll watch Christmas in Connecticut for the first time this weekend. I'm a huge Barbara Stanwyck fan. Two of her best I'd recommend: Double Indemnity, and The Lady Eve.

What kinds of films do you all like? My plan is to write about film history, so this is right in my wheelhouse.

I love They All Laughed. Really underrated homage to the screwball comedy. John Ritter, Audrey Hepburn (her last film), Ben Gazara and Dorothy Stratten (also her last film). Dorothy looked absolutely luminous. I think she would have been a huge star. She had real screen presence, and she was very serious about her craft.

Peter Bogdanovich is somebody I'd really like to meet. His encyclopedic knowledge of film is pretty much legendary at this point. Also, What's Up, Doc?, Paper Moon and The Last Picture Show rank among the finest American films of the 1970s.

I love the movie, The Game with Michael Douglas and Sean Penn.

Just be sure to pay attention, as there is a lot going on in the movie.
