Hey there! I was scrolling the Creators section when I came across this article, and I told myself, "Seems cool, let's give it a try!". Basically you have to choose 5 films and 1 luxury item to bring with you on a desert island. Let's get started!
#1 American History X (1998)
American History X is absolutely my favourite film of all the time. No, I'm not a naziskin, I just think this is the best film about hate ever made. Plus it stars a young Edward Norton, which happens to be one of my favourite actors, and the last words of Danny's essay let hope. And hope is exactly what you need on a desert island.
#2 The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
The Empire Strikes Back is unarguably the best Star Wars film, and the best Sci-Fi film ever made. Luke Skywalker finally finds out the truth about his father, we hear the Imperial March for the first time and the lightsaber fights are just amazing. In a nutshell: the best way to spend time.
#3 All Is Lost (2013)
All Is Lost is a good survival film. Basically with any lines, Robert Redford is able to communicate just with his facial expressions and hands, plus he can teach you survival stuff. Not in my favourites list, still the best way to remind you it could be worse.
#4 Death at a Funeral (2007)
Death at a Funeral, the British one, is a brilliant black comedy, and one of the funniest ever made. Frank Oz handles the different situations brilliantly. Writing Peter Dinklage's character was a fantastic move, since he added lot of insanity to already insane situations. And being alone on a desert island might make you feel blue, so what's the better way to shake it off than watching an hilarious film that makes you laugh the whole time?
#5 Whiplash (2014)
Whiplash is a powerful, thrilling and exciting film with lot to teach: never give up, pursue your dream, no matter what. Miles Teller gives his best performance and J.K. Simmons is just flawless. This film is one of my favourites, and since I can't bring music, the constant drumming will be just fine.
Luxury item: Thomas Mann's Death in Venice
Books are a great form of entertainment, and they allows you to travel with imaginations to other places while being stuck on a damn desert island. Death in Venice is my favourite book, it takes place in my country and picturing the sound of the ocean won't be hard.
Looking forward to seeing your lists!
