In college, my focus was literature and film, as I wanted to be a film critic. I also got distracted by other focuses like nutrition, archaeology, interior design, data processing... I liked EVERYTHING! The one consistent thing since 6 years of acting and childhood dreams was to enter the film industry. More on this in coming months -
For now, I'll be sharing my favorite films by category and why. I'd love to hear what y'all have on your lists!
favorite love story
"The Ghost and Mrs. Muir" (1947)
A terribly romantic setting, a worthy heroine, a most impossible love story. It's witty, it's cinematic, it's beautifully written and acted out. I dare you to not shed a tear.
This was actually a really hard pick and mostly because it's "True Grit" but I adore both versions - the original and the remake. Technically, the remake added a lot more texture and cinema to the story, but the original felt historically made with "true grit." Just like it's hard to compare Michael Douglas with Kirk Douglas, I tend to go to the source. The source was John Wayne and the original rendition.
