I watch a lot of films, as you will have probably guessed. And I have some favourites that I call on every now and again. They are sure fire winners as far as I’m concerned, and can often fit the mood or occasion that I find myself in. Give them a go and see how they work for you – I’m pretty sure there’s something for everyone!
For rainy Sundays
Nothing beats hearing the rain pour down outside while you are curled up by the fire with a film on. Apart from when that movie is in glorious black and white. And, for those lazy Sundays when you have a couple of hours to kill, I strongly recommend that you take a look at Breathless – or À bout de souffle to give it its French title (avoid the Richard Gere American remake. It’s OK, but the original is far superior. And better for when it rains.) It’s a razor-sharp 1960 film by Jean-Luc Godard that looks and feels like it was only made yesterday. I studied it during my first year at university and it’s brilliant. And it also has Jean Seberg dripping cool with the best pixie cut you will ever see.
