Mike’s Top Ten of 1948

1948 might be my favorite year of the 40s. Just because the top ten list feels like a complete list of ten that I out and out love.

There’s also a lot of great stuff below the line, but the key to this one is the top ten. The top three are straight up “best films ever made” material. And the others are just straight classics and/or great films by great directors who are right in their prime.

Get ready for this one, guys. It’s a very good year. (more…)


Pic of the Day: “You know that song? Hmmm?” “I can’t remember who did it.” “That’s the way it is with good ones, you’re sure you’ve heard them before.”
