this little exercise originated over at citizenrobot and i have enjoyed looking around at everyone else's so i thought i would try my hand at it. the general idea is to choose your favorite film for each letter of the alphabet. here we go.
a is for aguirre, the wrath of god (1972).
b is for the bank dick (1940).
c is for the conversation (1974).
d is for dead of night (1945).
e is for the elephant man (1980).
f is for f for fake (1975).
g is for gaslight (1944).
h is for halloween (1978).
i is for the in-laws (1979).
j is for juliet of the spirits (1965).

m is for the maltese falcon (1941).

x is for x: the man with the x-ray eyes (1963).

mine actually turned out to be a fairly accurate representation of my cinematic proclivities. how about yours?
