Providing the perfect environment for summer fun!

Note that, as we approach the present day, agreement gets rarer. We had 10 coincidental selections in the s, exactly as many as we did in the four-and-a-half decades from to today.
That mirrors a consensus on classic films, especially classics from Hollywood, and a fragmenting of taste ever since. As for directors of the other three films, they already had films on the final list—though Hawks, Sturges and Almodovar are all as deserving of being multiple-film directors on the TIME as Scorsese, Lubitsch, Wilder, Bergman, Stanley Kubrick and Leone.
Perhaps you demand, Why either? Well, because Schickel preferred the first film, and I love the second, and neither of us would budge. A more general question: Further, he wanted to reward peak periods in the careers of great directors. Sturges gets three mentions in four years.
A director-centric selection is one way to go. A film-savvy fellow I know said he would have found slots for all six of the films Sternberg made with Marlene Dietrich. For me, in compiling this list, the films were the thing, not their makers.
Not an anti-auteurist, but a not-quite. Fields is the author of that rough comedy gem. Schickel, out in L. I put four Chinese films on the list and, as it happens, I have dined congenially once or twice with the makers of all those films: Schickel can fairly say he dines with one of his honorees every night.
Richard and I used these slots as a kind of B list for some of our original favorites. I managed to get nine of these into subsidiary sections: Assessing the so-called golden age, we seem to be very Home Team.
Ah, but of those 27 American films, nearly half, 13, were directed by men born abroad: Why did they come to the U. You may deduce that, at least for the Germans, Austrians and Hungarian, most of them Jewish, the answer was one word: Another word explains the lure of these directors for and to Hollywood: That was the German studio where Lubitsch, Murnau and others made the films that attracted the attention of the Eastern European men who ran the U.
They came to Hollywood for the same reason—except that, there, not Europe but the world was their audience. I argued, more stridently than Schickel, for geographical politics. Yet we both ignored gender politics. It happens that Lemmons is an African-American, so the inclusion of her film would have addressed another nagging deficiency in the list—if you believe, as I half do, that the should be as inclusive as possible.
The non-Caucasian directors, 11, are all Asian: Japanese, Chinese or Indian. To compliment our selection of Guilty Pleasures, we might have had another sidebar called Guilty Conscience—a contingent of films from developing countries and other underrepresented regions and ethnicities.
Last month TCM played more than a dozen Mexican movies from the 40s and 50s. As with Indian musicals, these robust artifacts made me wonder: What have I been missing? Life is a contnuing film education. And I remain a very impressionable lad. Some readers might think that I shoehorned and strong-armed too many obscure titles onto the list—all those Asian films that were barely or never released in the U.
Apparently some of you agree: Thanks, India and China, for voting early and often. And the half-argument against such a niche:Watch video · The Sundance story - How I saw " Days of Summer." 29 March | by dwight ward – See all my reviews This is the story of boy meets girl, but it is not a love story that will unfurl.
