favorite movies

I've been thinking a lot recently about my favorite films.

The new Sight and Sound movie lists came out a while back. I never knew the criteria for those. How did each person choose? To someone like me – movie enthusiast and aspiring filmmaker – what does it mean to have a favorite film? Is it something I consider to be a great work of art? Or is it something I can watch over and over again, that maintains the same level of enjoyment every time? It could be a movie that influenced the way I look at films and filmmaking and storytelling as I pursue my career, or it could be something that just rocked the way I look at the world. Maybe it just something that's nothing but deep sentimental value.

the concept art is badass. it's like an R rated wall-e. or I guess pg-13. how seriously can people take robot violence? the landscapes are especially great.

I forgot how fucking hard movie editing is. It literally is the grammar and style of the filmmaking language, so you could imagine the vast complexities and endless permutations one encounters. I have been in the editing stage of my thesis film for the past several months, the main reason for my lack of entries among other things. I've found these pieces of information useful.
