In this column, I share some of the movies I am most thankful for:
Thanksgiving (or, as it’s known in my multinational household, American Thanksgiving) is a day to reflect on what we are most thankful for. And since one of the things I’m most thankful for is the ability to write and talk about movies as part of my job, I thought I’d get even more specific and talk about the movies I’m most thankful for.
This isn’t necessarily my list of favorite movies. But I sat down and tried to think about the movies that have shaped me the most as a person, or added the most to my life during my formative years. Think of this list as a collection of reverse Horcruxes — as I first watched each of these movies, they created a little piece of what would become my soul.
