Meine 10 Lieblingsfilme

1. November 2014 at 23:30

 

Hier mal eine Liste meiner 10 Lieblingsfilme. Ich schreibe bewusst nicht Die 10 besten Filme aller Zeiten (das wäre auch ziemlich anmaßend, oder?), denn es gibt sicher Filme, die qualitativ besser sind als die zehn in dieser Liste, aber für mich haben sie einfach einen sehr persönlichen Stellenwert. Ich habe jeden einzelnen von ihnen unzählige Male gesehen, wenn es mir schlecht ging oder wenn ich krank war oder in jeder anderen erdenklichen Lebenslage, und ich kann sie vermutlich mitsprechen. Ich versinke regelrecht in ihnen und blende alles andere aus.

Ausnahmsweise möchte ich keine konkrete Reihenfolge aufstellen, diese Filme existieren für mich gleichberechtigt nebeneinander und es würde keinem von ihnen ernsthaft gerecht werden. Wie immer sind Kommentare ausdrücklich erwünscht, eigene Listen wären sogar noch schöner!
