Catch the latest episode of The Movie Palace podcast, where you’ll hear the show’s host Carl Sweeney and I discuss one of our favorite movies, Casablanca. Many thanks to Carl for having me as a guest. Hope you enjoy the show!
Although I’ve been back from Noir City 17 for a week now, I’ve had little time to actually sit down and write about the festival. I decided to focus my first article on the wonderful people of Noir City. I hope you’ll enjoy it.
So what did we talk about after watching Sullivan’s Travels at the library last night? Find out!
I’ll be headed to Noir City soon, so the blog will be on hiatus until I get back. While I won’t be posting here during the festival, I will be tweeting as much as I can, so please follow me @awolverton77 on Twitter. In the meantime, please feel free to check out my posts from last year’s Noir City 16. Stay tuned!
Here they are. Let the discussions begin!
Since my website is down for maintenance right now, you’ll get my entire here first! Thanks for reading.
In an earlier post, I mentioned that I both love and hate lists. I love making them, but I hate that people (including myself) tend to consider lists inflexible, rigid, carved in stone. Since my tastes are so fluid, so is my list. My #20 pick might be my #3 later today. Numbers and tastes change, so my Best of 2018 list appears in alphabetical order. But I am separating my “Top 10” from the rest of the pack, so today will begin with my “#11 through 20” list.
Calling this a “Best of” list is something of a misnomer. I think all of these films are good, some very good, but probably only a few of them are great. Many of these films made me think and some of them challenged me in ways that make me uncomfortable. When you can’t stop thinking about a movie, it’s worked its magic on you. And some of these films I simply had fun watching.
