A personal favorite does not have to be the best movie ever made or even critically acclaimed. It can be a box office bomb or a an extremely unpretentious, ordinary film. A movie becomes a personal favorite when something in it touches you in an emotional, personal level. It does not necessarily impress you by its sophistication, level of intelligence or technique, but something special that speaks directly to the heart. These titles have spoken to mine.
Seen on 2013. For the first time or not.
Not necessarily the "most important" ones.
Just a list of films I've seen (for the first time or not) since june of 2012 till the end of the year. I'm trying to watch a lot of movies from the 20s, 30s and 40s before I get to the 50s, 60s, 70s and so forth – but meanwhile all that process, I get to watch some recent releases too (how not to?). I try to look for renowned directors and actors or simply themes that interest me.
In chronological order. And yes, I'm ignoring Bringing Up Baby, Arsenic and Old Lace and An Affair to Remember.
Also: I do love Blonde Venus, She Done Him Wrong and I'm No Angel, but I don't think Cary Grant was the real star of those movies. Marlene Dietrich and Mae West should get all the praise.
Only the best of Buster Keaton.
