Broke and curled up on his couch in college,

we would use movies to express what we were about, what we were into.

We would take turns picking them…

carefully selecting what we wanted to say to each other

with the touch of a play button

in the dark.

This is my list of 12 – a wild combo of love/lust/romance/bank robbery and ghosts.

If you could make it through of all them.

You’d really know me then.

Sid and Nancy

I am in love with the Sex Pistols.

I’ve seen this film a billion times.

I wanted to have a relationship like Sid and Nancy when I was little.

They were my dream couple.

I’m a little fucked up.

Secretary

Pure Kink.

The only movie that has ever made me want to work in an office.

This one messed me up forever.

You should watch it – and I’ll totally be watching you out of the corner of my eye to see if you’re down.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Brilliant. Mind-bending.

You can’t forget true love.

Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World

Scott has to defeat Ramona’s 7 evil ex’s to date her.

Video games. Rock and roll. Awkward Romance. Hell yes.

“If she’s the girl of your dreams, you have to let her know. Step up your game, Scott, break out the L word.”

“Lesbian?”

“The other L word.”

“Lesbians?”

Almost Famous

Rock and Roll. Writing. Yeah.

We watch this every time we go on tour.

It’s kind of a tradition now.

And then all of us sing along to Tiny Dancer as the tour bus rolls on.

The Blues Brothers

One of my all-time favorites.   A classic.

Elwood: It’s 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark… and we’re wearing sunglasses.

Jake: Hit it.

Moonrise Kingdom

Forbidden Love.

Secret Notes.

Maps.

Escape plans.

Running away.

Princess Bride

Faerie Tales.

Adventure.

Romance.

And storming the castle…

Edward Scissorhands

My inner goth girl lives for this.

Misunderstood.

Different.

Badass.

Bonnie and Clyde

Your classic “let’s go rob banks and fall in love” movie.

One of my favs.

To Have and Have Not

The trailer famously says,

“Where every man has a price!

Where every woman has a past!

….Living Dangerously……Loving Recklessly.”

Yes, Please.

Moulin Rogue

A Showgirl.

A Writer.

Truth. Beauty. Freedom. Love.

Now what are some movies that say something about you?

What movie would you want me to see?
