I haven't been the happiest camper lately, so here's a list partly inspired by Mike's alphabet of happiness.
I've noticed that there are certain films that I watch when I need a little pick me up. Here they are. I'd supply you with witty commentary, but it's way past my bedtime.
- O Brother, Where Art Thou
- Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
- Almost Famous
- Garden State
- Lost in Translation
- Singing in the Rain
- Philadelphia Story
- The Science of Sleep (once it comes out on DVD)
So, there you have it. Those are the films that make me happy.I could have put a lot more Jimmy Stewart in there, but I restrained myself. Seriously, though, nothing brings a smile to my face quite like a drunken Steward shouting "Oh, C. K. Dexter Haven" at the top of his lungs.
I can already think of at least three films that I missed in compiling this quick list, but I'm just going to publish this puppy and go to sleep. I'll leave you to post the films that you think I should have included -- either in the comments or in your own blog.
