Favorite Film

Pierrot Le Fou (Jean-Luc Godard, 1965)

Pierrot Le Fou (Jean-Luc Godard, 1965)

Whenever somebody ask me “What is you favorite film?”, depending on the mood of that day that I’m in; I answer back by saying “………. is my favorite film”, for I have more than one film as a favorite. Take right now as I write this, my answer to that question will be Jean-Luc Godard’s Pierrot Le Fou, for this morning I was reading about Jean-Luc Godard and I’m in now in the mood for Godard. Any other day I would have said Nicholas Ray’s Johnny Guitar . When I say “Favorite Film”, it mean the film that I love, adore, admire, etc, a film that is everything, a film that is on every one of your lists.

  1. Hi,
    The collection of posters for the wonderful movies is astonishing! Simply magnificent!! Would it be possible to have them show up now squeezed together? That would be even nicer!!!

  2. Superb collection of films Karzan, the film that shocked me the most when I first saw it was “Freaks” 1932, I’ll never forget it. Very impressive collection of films. Thanks for visiting my site and for the follow. My regards, James 🙂

  3. Thanks for the follow … I was, at one time in my life addicted to foreign movies w/subtitles …notice a great many on that list are favs .. amazing list

  4. Thank you for making this list. I never know what to watch. It seems that we are in agreement on many movies, so now I have place to go for ideas.

    Do you write your own screenplays as well?

    1. Glad the list is a help to you, since I have not updated the list for more than two years, there many more films to add to it.

      The short films that I have made so far, I have written the script for it myself, unless you have a great talent of a writer, it is always recommend to write your owns script, for documentaries, you rarely need a script, maybe a small outline, the rest will fall in place by itself.

  5. Have you seen the following and if so, do you recommend them:
    A Letter to Breznev
    Hey Babu Reba
    Strangers in Good Company
    My Mother’s Castle and My Father’s Glory
    Fanny and Alexander
    Cries and Whispers
    After the Rehersal
    Before Sunrise
    After Sunset

    I just found these written down in an old notebook. Someone told me to watch them a long time ago. I have only seen the last two.

    1. Ingmar Bergman’s Fanny and Alexander, Cries and Whispers, and After the Rehearsal with Richard Linklater’s Before Sunrise and After Sunset are always recommended.

  6. سڵاو کاکە کارزانی بەڕێز و خۆشەویست ، هیوادارم هەمیشە لەگەشەکردن و بەهێزبووندابیت ، هەمیشە کارەکانی بەڕێزت بووەتە جێگای سەرنجی من و هەردەم ئاواتە خوازی ئەوەم کاری نوێتری بەڕێزتان ببینم و تامەزرۆبم بەبینیانیان ، هیوادارم ئاسودە و لەش ساغ بن .
