I’m reversing the process this week; instead of recommending something to you, I’m asking for your movie recommendations. Usually I have a list going but I’ve been at home at lot recently so I’ve managed to make my way through everything I wanted to see. So bring it on; tell me about your must see movies, the ones that no viewing life should be without. Alternatively I’m listing some of my favourite genres below in case this sparks any gems in your memory:
Gangster movies: I’ve already seen the obvious ones. Basically the ideal formula contains guns, men kissing other men before shooting them in the head, people being garrotted in their cars by their closest friends, a psychotic Irishman staring down another psychotic Irishman, people doing industrial amounts of drugs before going on violent rampages, hookers, grieving widows, family gatherings replete with stoic mothers, and more guns. See here, here and here for examples.
Disaster movies: Regular readers will know I have a passion for disaster movies. I have mined the genre fairly extensively but if there are any obscure and/or hilariously implausible ones that I have yet to watch, please tell me.
Documentaries: I watch a lot of them. I’m always in the mood to learn.
I humbly await your suggestions in the comments and thank you in advance.
