All my friends can tell you I'm a huge movie fiend. I devour films, all genres, good or bad, start to finish. I've only ever walked out of one movie in my entire life, Dumb and Dumber, and I think it had more to do with how annoyed I was with my then boyfriend. Anyway, I came across Film Alphabet illustrations by Stephen Wildish to represent decades in films. I showcased the 1970's but you can find them all on his website under The Friday Projects. And while you're there check out his other designs. I love the simplicity of his work.
I'm sure you've been asked more than once to list your top 10 films. Mine's constantly evolving. Still, asked on the spot, I can never seem to come up with a complete list, nor can I narrow it down to just ten. Here are some of my favorites... in no particular order:
