free write # 23/movies
There was nothing like slipping into the darkness of an old movie theater. the smell of buttered popcorn and the matrons telling us to please get our feet off the seats. someone saying shhhh when we giggled too much.
my favorite movie of all time is The Wizard of Oz. i love the color and the characters and the flying monkeys made me cry.
we'll always have paris. great line from a great film. an old man whispering rosebud, another favorite. orson wells was so appealing at that point in his life. the Bridges of madison county. the wide open sky in thelma and louise.
there's a pattern here, i like those films that move me to tears.
a movie transports; transcends time.
