Maggie’s Top Ten of All Time

I have always resisted making this list. It’s never felt right. I like lists that have some sort of thematic cohesion. I enjoy grouping movies together that have a central connection or a common a thread, like a rosary bead. But this list has no cohesive theme because it’s about celebrating the movies I have collected over a life time, like souvenirs. The ones I have picked up over the years and called my own. They have meant different things to me at different times. So it’s always felt messy and all over the place. But that’s okay because life can be messy and all over the place. These are the films that are dearly beloved to me from many eras and many places. It’s the top ten of a lifetime... so far💗📽
