Giving Thanks for Film

Greetings from Suzz C. :
First off, let us give a small apology to those who check in with the LFC on a regular basis. But just because our lives are a bit more hectic with the holiday season approaching doesn’t mean that film isn’t on our mind. It is. And our free time – what we have of it – has been spent viewing and discussing films. But before I get to this, let me remind everyone that in a little over a week on SUNDAY, DECEMBER 7 at 2 p.m., the LFC will screen the final film of its “Music On Film” series, Searching for the Wrong-Eyed Jesus. We hope you will join us!

Brett and I had a wonderful dinner last night at the home of a fellow LFC member and film buff. It was a fabulous night that turned even better during dinner when talk quickly darted to our favorite films. It’s a tough question – “…so what’s your favorite film?” – but isn’t it the query ALL filmies ultimately love to hear? We do indeed. For having the floor and talking about our love of cinema, childhood movie memories and great movie moments is truly what good times are made of. IF you’re a filmie.

I’ll close this post with a mention of films that came up ’round the dinner table, plus a couple more that we’ve indulged in at home this past week. They’re all just too good to go unmentioned, and I mention them here in no particular order: The Lion in Winter, The Third Man, The Day the Earth Stood Still (the original,

please), Creator, Sex & Lucia, HITCHCOCK (Psycho, Strangers on a Train, The Trouble With Harry, Rope), American Beauty, October Sky, Adaptation, Cries & Whispers, How to Steal a Million, My Favorite Year, On Golden Pond, Christmas on Mars, COEN BROS. (The Big Lebowski, Blood Simple, Miller’s Crossing, Barton Fink, Raising Arizona, Oh Brother Where Art Thou?), Grand Hotel, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, There Will Be Blood, Teeth (and there’s a reason I’ve linked this one), Woodpecker (yes, another link), The Strangers, Jigoku, Pascali’s Island, and I think I need to wind up this list …

To everyone, Happy Thanksgiving, and make time for some film this holiday weekend!
