Happy Wednesday! I’m trying something new again, giving you a question to answer, or at least a place to start discussion, along with the usual “what are you watching and thinking and reading this week?” questions.
My sister was visiting last weekend, and moviemavengal asked me in the questions post on Monday what films I sat her down and forced her to watch. Because of course I did that. My sister and I are very very close and very very similar (if you want to see how similar, check out our podcast. It’s a bit confusing, because our voices are almost identical). But she has less time to watch movies than I do. So every time I see her, it is a matter of my quickly sorting through every film I have seen since the last time and figuring out which 3-6 she absolutely MUST watch. Because she would enjoy them, because I want someone else to appreciate them, because just in general they are good things to have seen. This time it was Santosham, Nennunanu, 24, 1:Nenokaddin, and City of God.
So, that’s what I did all weekend. Oh, and I also built a bed, and started reading the Bahubali novel (but I won’t tell you about it because I am saving up all my thoughts for a real post when I am finished!).
Now, tell me, if you had/have a sister (or lifelong best friend or mother or cousin or anyone else who has almost identical taste to you but less time to watch films), what would be your films that you would stack up and force them to watch over the course of a weekend?
