    Good list. After listing your last ten movies in each post, you should put your #1 top pick of all ten at the bottom of the post.

    Good idea. My favorite of this ten was . . . City Girl!

    Did you notice the score for City Girl? I liked it a lot.Interesting to find out how Days of Heaven is influenced by it.

    Far From Heaven is film I’m dying to see,I want to see how it is influenced by Fassbinder’s Fear Eats the Soul.

    I’ve known The Awful Truth in the supplement in CC dvd,heard its terrific.

    Oh yeah, the score for City Girl is probably my favorite “contemporary score” written for a silent film. The music is as breathtaking as the images.

    Far From Heaven is an excellent remake of not only Fear Eats the Soul but also Douglas Sirk’s All That Heaven Allows (part of the Criterion Collection as well).

    The Awful Truth is one of the funniest movies ever made. I’m glad Leo McCarey is finally getting the respect he deserves. The Criterion edition of Make Way for Tomorrow is superb.
