Zehn Lieblingsfilme von mir II

8. Dezember 2016 at 13:16

 

 

 

Allzu viele großen Worte muss ich an dieser Stelle vermutlich nicht verlieren, erklärt sich die Intention doch von selbst. Es gibt einfach viel zu viele Filme, die mir zu sehr am Herzen liegen, als dass ich mich da freiwillig limitieren oder festlegen möchte. Zudem glaube ich, dass es DEN Lieblingsfilm nicht wirklich geben kann. Zumindest bei mir kann das je nach Situation und/oder Gefühlslage mächtig variieren, insofern reichen auch zehn Filme nicht aus und nach nun rund zwei Jahren denke ich, dass es an der Zeit ist für weitere zehn. Zweifellos werden noch weitere folgen, doch für heute müssen die folgenden zehn Filme erst einmal reichen. Wie schon damals zu Beginn dieser Seiten werde ich auch dieses Mal auf eine konkrete Reihenfolge verzichten, die ohnehin keinem dieser Filme auch nur annähernd gerecht werden könnte.
