Mi Top Ten cinematográfico

Hoy me he parado a pensar en cuáles son mis películas preferidas, más allá de las 3 o 4 que siempre he tenido sobre un pedestal. Y de paso, recordando que bastantes veces me han preguntado cuáles son las películas que recomendaría, he listado 10 en este post.

He de decir que se me ha hecho una lista muy corta, porque me he dejado muchísimas en el tintero que perfectamente podrían haber ocupado el sitio de otras que finalmente sí aparecen. Para no hacerlo tan soso he añadido una gran frase de cada una, y más adelante, en otros posts, iré poniendo una crítica personal de algunas de ellas. ¿Cuál es vuestra lista?

1. El apartamento (The Apartment, 1960; Dir.: Billy Wilder; Int.: Jack Lemmon, Shirley MacLaine, Fred MacMurray) 

Ya know, I used to live like Robinson Crusoe. I mean shipwrecked among 8 million people. And then one day I saw a footprint in the sand and there you were.

2. De entre los muertos (Vertigo, 1958; Dir.: Alfred Hitchcock; Int.: James Stewart, Kim Novak) 

And then what did he do? Did he train you? Did he rehearse you? Did he tell you exactly what to do, what to say? You were a very apt pupil too, weren’t you? You were a very apt pupil! Why did you pick on me? Why me?

3. Annie Hall (1977; Dir.: Woody Allen; Int.: Woody Allen, Diane Keaton) 

Love is too weak a word for what I feel – I luuurve you, you know, I loave you, I luff you, two F’s, yes I have to invent, of course I – I do, don’t you think I do?

4. American Beauty (1999; Dir.: Sam Mendes; Int.: Kevin Spacey, Annette Bening) 

Lose it? I didn’t lose it. It’s not like, “Whoops! Where’d my job go?” I QUIT. Someone pass me the asparagus.

5. Blade Runner (1982; Dir.: Ridley Scott; Int.: Harrison Ford, Sean Young, Daryl Hannah, Rutger Hauer) 

Not very sporting to fire on an unarmed opponent. I thought you were supposed to be good. Aren’t you the “good” man? C’mon, Deckard. Show me what you’re made of.

6. Casablanca (1942; Dir.: Michael Curtiz; Int.: Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman) 

Inside of us, we both know you belong with Victor. You’re part of his work, the thing that keeps him going. If that plane leaves the ground and you’re not with him, you’ll regret it. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life.

 7. Persiguiendo a Amy (Chasing Amy, 1997; Dir.: Kevin Smith; Int.: Ben Affleck, Joey Lauren Adams, Jason Lee) 

It’s not who you love, it’s how.

8. Eva al desnudo (All About Eve, 1950; Dir.: Joseph L. Mankiewicz; Int.: Bette Davis, Anne Baxter, George Sanders) 

Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy night!

 9. Con faldas y a lo loco (Some Like It Hot, 1959; Dir.: Billy Wilder; Int.: Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis, Marilyn Monroe) 

Well, nobody’s perfect.

 10. Hable con ella (2002; Dir.: Pedro Almodovar; Int.: Javier Cámara, Darío Grandinetti, Leonor Watling) 

El cerebro de la mujer es un misterio. Y en este estado más.
