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.

    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.
