Favourite films

I especially enjoy films that express some these distinctives: 

  • Themes of redemption, epics.
  • Journey or quest motifs.
  • Rise of an underdog / against all odds.
  • Films that have some inspirational oratorical rhetoric or speeches.
  • Beautiful choreography.
  • I also appreciate sublime sounding soundtracks- sounds that seem to touch the soul.

Following are some examples:

  • A Beautiful Mind
  • Amistad
  • Anna and the King
  • Apollo 13
  • Big Wednesday
  • Brave Heart
  • Chariots of Fire
  • Chocolate
  • El Cid
  • Empire of the Sun
  • Glory
  • Hidalgo
  • Merlin
  • Nevada Smith
  • October Sky
  • Romeo & Juliet (Franco Zeffirelli version)
  • The Bourne trilogy
  • The Lord of the Rings trilogy
  • The New World
  • The Right Stuff
  • The Pursuit of ‘Happyness’
  • Without Limits
  • 1492: conquest of Paradise
