Michael Leary’s Top 10 of 2005

One of my favorite film writers, Michael Leary, who blogs at ImageFacts, sees more of the international highlights than I do, partly due to living between Chicago and Scotland.

Thus, I’ve been eagerly awaiting his Top Ten list, and here I am, reading it at The Matthews House Project and taking notes for future DVD rentals…

I haven’t seen the film he put at #1.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.

  • Gaffney

    Walt is one of my favorite authors. I recently pulled out one of his many short story collections to re-immerse myself in his world. My favorite deals with him as a child being told he is the “spittin’ image” of his grandfather, which leads to a comtemplation of the method his gramps used to hit the spitoon from across the room. As well as a revelation of what “spittin’ image” really means.

    Priceless stuff.
