"Ten films I go to time and again"

A Listmania! list by steven j. bosque (San Francisco, CA USA)
The list author says: "These may not be the best films ever made ("The Passion of Joan", "Rules of the Game" and "Raging Bull" are not included); but, rather, these movies are like comfort food on a cold winter's night. I include "True Grit 2010" even though it has not yet been released on dvd, since I've seen it 5 times in the theater and will own it just as soon as Amazon ships it to me. I hope these strike a chord. Enjoy!"

Miller's Crossing
6.  Miller's Crossing DVD ~ Gabriel Byrne
The list author says:
  "The Coen Bothers do Hammett. They capture the essence of "Red Harvest" and "The Glass Key", paying subtle homages to multiple films along the way, from the original "Scarface" to "The Conformist" and "The Godfather", and in so doing fashion a modern masterpiece."
$6.19   Used & New from: $0.26

Vertigo (Collector's Edition)
8.  Vertigo (Collector's Edition) DVD ~ James Stewart
The list author says:
  "Maybe it's because I was born and raised in San Francisco, and this is the quintesstial San Francisco movie.  This film is haunting and beautiful and perverted; all at the same time."
Used & New from: $0.01

North by Northwest (Two-Disc 50th Anniversary Edition)
9.  North by Northwest (Two-Disc 50th Anniversary Edition) DVD ~ Cary Grant

  "Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint and Mt. Rushmore.  Hithcock plays us like a pipe organ, but it feels so good..."
$13.65   Used & New from: $5.29
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,220 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

True Grit
10.  True Grit DVD ~ Jeff Bridges
The list author says:
  "It's a little bit early to do so, but I'm calling this a classic. This is "Huckleberry Finn" meets "The Night of the Hunter" meets "The Searchers" and "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance". And it's funny as hell while being profoundly serious. One of the best Westerns ever made. Hell, one of the best films ever made."
$5.99   Used & New from: $0.66
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,031 customer reviews) | 5 customer discussions
