The top ten movie watching experiences this year at NWFF:
(in no particular order)
Taking Off – Sort of like the first time you watched Dazed and Confused and you realized you’d be quoting this movie for a long, long time.
Coming Home – A solid, relevant movie that doesn’t get much rep.
Under the Stars – Lighthearted, fun, and an appreciative sold-out house
Tubs Film Challenge – You may have had to be there, but by the name alone you can guess how awesome it was.
The Last Detail – Dare I say they just don’t make them like this anymore?
Deep End - For the love of soundtracks.
Shotgun Stories - A reminder of why NWFF is here. I don’t know why bigger chains passed on this one, but it was their loss.
Cruising – Hips or lips?
The Violin – One of those “underappreciated gems” that actually is both underappreciated and a gem
Bullitt – Preposterous car chases, a groovy score, mindless machismo, and a packed house that laps it all up? What else can you ask for in a movie-going experience. (Steven Mcqueen definitely rivals Jean-Paul Belmondo in Breathless for the number of tough-talking retorts that make the audience audibly giggle.)
