revolverwife asked: Actually I've been curious for a while - what are your film tastes too? I heard from KipIcon that you and them share a favorite movie, and I'm curious as to which it is.
Below are what I would suppose to be twelve of my most cherished films. Out of honesty I should admit I eliminated one, the 13th, from the list because I felt that film to be too specially personal to reveal.
*Translated to ‘The Passion of Joan of Arc’. The dialogue in this film is entirely quoted from the actual transcript from Joan’s trial.
*The original Carpenter version. Fun fact—-the director of the special effects was hospitalized for exhaustion after the film’s completion.
*There is a wonderful stop motion animation film titled ‘The Fool and The Flying Ship’ based around a similar story that I would highly recommend.
*Return to Oz is laden with intricate symbolism that only someone of abnormally developed faculties could interweave. Meaningful detail drips from every facet of its production.
*The original Alice in Wonderland is written as a dream yet every other director has approached the material as a fairy tale. A truer version than any despite its liberties.
*i love this film more for its wit than its comedy. Groucho seems the basis for Bugs Bunny.
*I adore most of Miyazaki’s later filmography but this is my favorite of his works.
