Visions of Masterworks Dancing in My Head

It's the weekend before Christmas, and I'm packing suitcases and second-guessing gift purchases and feeling as bad as you are about all the phone calls and e-mails I still have to return. I'm also not positive that I'll be able to post any more of the Favorites until after my holiday trip, but to compensate, here's a sneak peak of the new year I've got planned for Nick's Flick Picks. Remember that the Favorites are meant to add personality and caprice to my adjacent Top 100 Films list, which is much more conservatively defined as yet another list of the "best" movies you absolutely have to see. I revised them both at the same time in the autumn, but I haven't decided yet what to do with the Top 100 in terms of writing. I'm having so much fun with the Favorites that I want to do something, but I'm still considering the possibilities. While I figure it out—and since Salome lived for nothing if not to teach me to unveil in stages—here is a preview of half of the revised Top 100. Five movies from each bracket of ten. Don't expect all the links to work: this is a rough draft of a work in progress, etc. But it's something fun to put in your stocking, as a loyal reader of this blog (THANK YOU!!) and in anticipation of many happy discussions in the new year.

Apropos of nothing, Nick, I love the juxtaposition of the MORVERN... and ...DUNES images. Surely intentional, but serendipitous all the same.

@Bill: Not sure I'm following, just because the Morvern and Dunes images aren't immediately juxtaposed. If I've done something serendipitous and lovable, I want to know about it!

@Dr. S: Sadly, No, but also, not so sadly, No. (Apologies to other readers for being cryptic; it's even less interesting than it sounds.)

Ha, "juxtaposed" was confusing, I guess; couldn't think of a better word to describe successive images. I just like that the two women are almost identically posed, and when you scroll down the DUNES still suggests a photonegative of the MORVERN one.

I'll shuddup now.
