The BBC has just announced the results of a survey looking for the most highly regarded films of the 21st Century so far. I looked at the list and realised I had only seen two of them. Oh dear, I am not a film buff. I am not an intellectual, either. With many of these films, I would rather watch an episode of the Open University on fluid dynamics than endure some of the pretentious tripe loved by film critics.
My watched ones were:
6. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2006) which I quite enjoyed but am amazed it ranks at number 6.. I saw it at the cinema with Agent DVD
45. Blue is the Warmest Colour (2013). Borrowed Agent DVD's Blu-ray. Quite enjoyed it (parts of it quite a lot indeed). Very pretentiously French.
I wonder how many Agent DVD has seen?
The number one film was David Lynch's Mulholland Drive which, of course, I haven't seen, although partly because the DVD version is cut compared with the cinema version, something I hate.
