  5. I'll throw out an idea (the rest of you will likely toss it as trash). If we want to talk about getting older in a lifelong context, we might want to consider various points along the way (cf. Gail Sheehy's Passages for example). We could then (depending on how many such point we identify) pick the best 3-5 films for each point. E.g., we might want to look at films that mark a transition to parenthood, empty nesting, retirement, illness, etc.

  8. Watched it on Netflix a couple days ago. Still think it's wonderful, but it did lose a bit of the power it had on the big screen. TV just not as overwhelming.
  9. Interesting Op-ed piece in LA Times today growing out of Roma. http://enewspaper.latimes.com/infinity/article_share.aspx?guid=0683abd3-fa20-4ab4-9b39-2e35c35aadfb - A troubled intimacy

  13. All the Money in the World - July 10, 1973. Date is shown at the beginning of the scene in which Paul is kidnapped.
  14. Films about the same fairly short period of time and events: Dunkirk is better than Darkest Hour. (Although I think they would make a great double feature--Dunkirk playing first

  21. Darkest Hour. At the beginning, a date fills the screen: 9 May 1940. At various points the date returns and changes (like an old digital clock) to another. 10 May, 13 May, 19 May, 25 May, 27 May, 28 May. End of film notes May 8 as the day victory achieved.
