if you could save only 10 films for humanity, what would they be?
This week’s question was suggested by reader @potionstar:
If you could save only 10 films for humanity, what would they be?
I don’t know what the scenario is: Perhaps you’ve got 10 minutes to grab DVDs from your collection, or an hour to download 10 films, before the Vogon constructor fleet destroys Earth and you escape with Ford Prefect. So, what are the most essential films that would explain humanity to galactic civilization?
One of mine would definitely be the Marx Brothers’ A Night at the Opera, for it’s sheer insanity. I’d want the aliens to know that we weren’t all wars and genocide and destroying our environment.
You? (It’s okay if you don’t have 10. Even one or two is fine.)
