Okay, so Spring is here, and the clocks go forward tonight. The sun is shining. So I thought I would challenge myself with listing 5 ‘sun-titled’ movies that are worth seeking out and watching (if you haven’t seen them already). I had to pick 5 I would genuinely recommend. So here goes:
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (Michel Gondry 2004)
Little Miss Sunshine (Jonathan Dayton/Valerie Faris 2006)
Sunrise (F W Murnau 1927)
Empire of the Sun (Steven Spielberg 1987)
Sunset Boulevard (Billy Wilder 1950)
I’m a fan of Richard Linklater’s ‘Before Sunrise’ too, but it narrowly missed out to Empire of the Sun. So there you have it. 5 great movies, in no particular order, and with nothing in particular to do with the sun other than their title.
Pointless exercise? Absolutely.
But I enjoyed sitting in the sun and thinking about it.
