this is a fun one--thanks.

once you see those other movies you mentioned, id be interested to see what gets bumped/moved around from your top ten. The Killing Fields is really amazing. And what about Anchorman? And remember Courteney Cox in Scream?

I haven't seen Anchorman! Big gap on my part--I have a feeling I'll love it.

I DO actually remember Courteney Cox in Scream, as that crazed caricature of a local TV news reporter whose enthralled with the bloodbath. I thought it was kind of hilarious.

The Year of Living Dangerously (1982)

Salvador (1986)

Those two are hereby added to the Netflix queue ... thanks, Greg!

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
